Schoolies | Schoolies Info | Youth Central

Between mid-November and mid-December every year, thousands of year 12 students celebrate the end of school with a holiday. Some places in Victoria run organised Schoolies celebrations, including:

  • Lorne
  • Torquay
  • Phillip Island
  • Rye.

The main Schoolies destinations in Victoria have put together the Good Times, Great Breaks website. It has information about:

  • getting to and around the local areas
  • how to have a good (and safe) time while you're there.

Other places may have their own organised schoolies efforts. A quick search for 'schoolies' and your destination should turn something up.
