After 12 or 13 years at school slaving away on assignments, studying for exams and doing heaps of meaningless and menial activities, it’s finally time to let loose and celebrate your freedom at Schoolies Week. This time-honoured tradition of farewelling your school days and spending a holiday in the sun with your mates is what Schoolies is all about, and we’ve got plenty of options to help you transition from high school to the next exciting stage of your life.
Whether you go the traditional route with a stay-and-play vacay on the Gold Coast, opt for an overseas trip or a life-changing volunteering experience, Schoolies is the opportunity to create life-long memories and blow off some steam. Whatever you want to do, Universal Traveller has the know-how to make your Schoolies more awesome than the formal and the post rolled into one. We’ll also save you heaps of cash on your flights, accommodation and extras like car hire transfers and awesome activities. Students can also take advantage of our exclusive Student Flights, just for being you!
If you’re not from the Gold Coast, the Schoolies capital of Australia has heaps to offer the post-high school reveller. Theme parks, awesome surf, epic beach parties, hitting up Cavill Mall or hanging out in Broadbeach – there’s plenty to do on the Goldie. Or perhaps you’d prefer to chill out in Byron Bay, party in Airlie Beach or head to the Sunshine Coast for some breaks and adventure? We can make that happen too.
But if you’d like to jet off overseas with your mates, we’ve got sweet Schoolies packages to awesome destinations like Fiji where you can stay for a week with all your meals, accommodation, airfares, island transfers, activities and night-time entertainment included – no toolies, foolies or droolies in sight! Another popular option is volunteering abroad where you get to give back to communities in need in countries like Thailand and Cambodia and have a feel-good holiday in one.
Here’s some of our most popular Schoolies options. Got any questions? Pop in-store or call our savvy Universal Traveller travel consultants for more information.
