Plan ahead for Schoolies Festival

Where to StayRemember to book your 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. Some 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 take bookings for school leavers. Please Note: each accommodation provider will have their own Terms & Conditions. Encounter Youth is not responsible for any bookings or accommodation provided at these venues.
