If there's one place to go on schoolies it would have to be the Gold Coast. Not many people know it but the Queensland State Government is the only Government in Australia that puts on numerous events for end of school leavers ready to let their hair down after finishing their final exams.
This year there will be various activities put on by the government and it will run from the 19th November to the 25th November 2011. With a valid ID one receives their official schoolies wristband which entitles them to a host of free entertainment run nightly from 7pm until midnight.
The wristband also provides the user with free use of schoolies transport that runs from the main beach to Broadbeach, making for safer transport for many. To make everyone's schoolies trip safer the volunteer program 'Red Frogs' also runs throughout schoolies; these volunteers wear brightly coloured vests and hand out red frogs lollies at every opportunity. They can also assist with directions, help those in need, walk people home and also cooking pancakes for you once you do finally get back to your place.
Schoolies is one of the best experiences of your life. It is a crazy, fun-filled week like no other.
