Where to Stay
Encounter Youth (Schoolies Festival™) does not take bookings for accommodation.You will need to contact accommodation providers directly. Not all accommodation providers in the area take bookings for school leavers and other places fill fast, so book early to avoid disappointment.
Many local owners/managers of accommodation providers partner together with Encounter Youth and emergency services throughout the year in the Schoolies Operation in order to provide safer accommodation for school leavers. Many providers add in extra perimeter fencing and hire security officers for the weekend.
We aim to assist accommodation providers where we can and as a part of that some places have our Green Team volunteers stationed within their site to provide places to chill out, enjoy a free BBQ, have a chat and access information about the Schoolies Festival™.
The following venues are in partnership with Encounter Youth and take bookings for Schoolies Festival™:
