Is Schoolies in Byron Bay safe?
Your level of safety is determined by your behaviour, however several measures have been put in place to make it as safe as possible for you.
We have been advised to only book at an Official Schoolies Resort. Is this right?
Absolutely. This is a must to ensure you that have no problems at check-in. It will also ensure you are at a “Verified” schoolies hotel – these hotels must meet guidelines of safety, prime location, good rooms, schoolies-friendly staff, and it also ensures that you don’t miss out on the genuine schoolies experience.
What’s the best hotel to stay at during schoolies week?
This is subjective, however most people base it on location, atmosphere and reputation from previous years. The “Byron Bay Backpackers Inn on the Beach” at 29 Shirley Street is currently ranked as the best place to stay for schoolies week
Is there a Schoolies Curfew?
No, there is no schoolies Curfew. Sure Thing Schoolies runs safe and professional schoolies events and NEVER enforces a curfew or lock-out, and NEVER leashes you to the hotel grounds.
Are there Schoolies Parties and Events?
Your booking will come with your official “Sure Thing Schoolies” Wristband. Byron Bay is set up to accommodate schoolies parties and events during schoolies week. This is probably the most exciting part of the experience for most people 🙂
How soon should we book?
Just like the hottest concert tickets… The schoolies hotel rooms get snapped up nice and early, the earlier you book, the better it is for you. To get things rolling, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and let them know how many people are in your group. From there, they will send you an itinerary of the best available hotel and will give you details on how you can make it yours!
