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:
- Phillip Island
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.
Register for Schoolies
If you're doing Schoolies in Lorne, Torquay, Phillip Island or Rye, registering is a great way to score free stuff and helpful local info.
Registration is FREE and gets you:
- access to shuttle buses
- free BBQs
- access to activities run by the Good Times Great Breaks teams.
To register, visit the Register as a school leaver page on the Good Times, Great Breaks website.
For the latest Schoolies information, follow Good Times, Great Breaks at www.facebook.com/goodtimesgreatbreaksvictoria.
If you're not doing Schoolies in the above areas, there may also be registration where you're going. It's worth looking into to see what kind of swag you could score. Do a search for the place you're heading to and 'schoolies registration'.
Have a safe time!
