COVID-19 Update

Whitsunday Schoolies 2020 has been cancelled due to the ongoing issues and risks relating to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Any students who have pre-registered for 2020 Whitsunday Schoolies activities through the Whitsunday Schoolies website will be contacted and are eligible for a full refund.

For any further enquiries, please contact Council’s Community Grants Support & Events Officer on 4945 0291.

Who can register for Schoolies?
To qualify as a ‘schoolie’ and obtain your official Whitsunday Schoolies wristband, you must be able to provide evidence, such as a photo ID, that you are a graduating Year 12 or TAFE equivalent student from an Australian education institution in 2020.

What does your Schoolies wristband get you?

For $120 your Schoolies wristband gets you:

  • Access to seven dance parties in Schoolies Central

  • Fun themed nights

  • Discounts on selected tours

  • Photobooth in Schoolies Central

  • Daily activities 

  • Yummy free food

  • Bus travel day and night around Airlie Beach/Cannonvale and Jubilee Pocket

To collect your Schoolies wristband when you arrive at Schoolies Central you must bring your current High School issued Year 12 or TAFE equivalent photo ID. Unfortunately no ID = no Schoolies wristband!

Please note that no refunds will be given if false information is provided.
