Byron Bay Schoolies
Schoolies Week started on the Gold Coast in the 1970's and is now a rite of passage for all School Leavers across Australia. This is the period where all Year 12 school leavers finally get to celebrate the end of their School years. This usually takes place between mid-November and mid-December when year 12 students Leaving Certificate exams are over.
Every year thousands of Year 12 students from around Australia and New Zealand make plans for a holiday to celebrate their end of school years and the completion of their Leaving Certificate. The main area of schoolies is on Queensland's Gold Coast, however Byron Bay Schoolies Week has become a major destination for that more laid back schoolies coming of age.
The Sunshine Coast, Airlie Beach and Tropical North QLD are also major Schoolies destinations however these tend to be more party towns. Each Schoolies Week traditionally attracts a different state of school leavers, so each state celebrates with their fellow students.
