    The Gold Coast has been the chosen destination for many Queensland high school graduates since the 1970s.
    The Queensland Government’s Safer Schoolies team operates a safety response for the first week of Schoolies each year, focused on enhancing the safety of young people and decreasing risk taking behaviour.

    The Safer Schoolies Gold Coast Response is free for legitimate Year 12 school leavers.
    It includes wristbanding for legitimate Year 12 school leavers, providing nightly access to the drug and alcohol-free Schoolies Hub, where they can celebrate safely in the company of their peers.

    In addition, the Response week features on the ground support provided by numerous government agencies and services, community and volunteer organisations.
