Plan ahead for Schoolies Festival


Many local accommodation owners and managers partner together with Encounter Youth and emergency services throughout the year in the Schoolies Operation in order to provide safer accommodation for school leavers.

Book your accommodation through an endorsed accommodation provider.
Endorsed Accommodation Providers

In 2018, Encounter Youth introduced a system of Endorsed Accommodation Providers. Endorsed Accommodation Providers carry Encounter Youth’s tick of approval and committed to a high standard of support and services to be provided over the weekend of Schoolies Festival

Before booking any accommodation for Schoolies Festival, check the Free MAC Schoolies Festival bus map to ensure that your transport is sorted for the weekend. 

The following venues were the Endorsed Accommodation Providers for Schoolies Festival 2018. Please note: each accommodation provider has their own Terms & Conditions and Encounter Youth is not responsible for any bookings or accommodation provided at these venues.
