7 things to do at Schoolies

Go to Timezone

Sure, Schoolies might be a cultural rite of passage marking the transition from school to the real world, but give in to the child at heart at the world’s biggest Timezone. There’s more than 300 arcade games, glow-in-the-dark mini golf, bowling and dodgem cars. Challenge your mates and hope to find victory. Plus, it’s open till midnight every day.

Battle it out with bowling

Keep the good times rolling and challenge your Schoolies crew to a fierce battle at the bowling alley. This isn’t your run-of-the-mill traditional tenpin bowling – Zone Bowling has 12 interactive lanes that light up with flames, sweet tunes and a snack bar onsite.

Hello matching tees!

Worried about losing your mates in the crowd? Looking for a unique souvenir? Want to make your people feel special? Get matching tees. Whether you come up with a cool name for your Schoolies crew or get a picture of the group printed across T-shirts, Xpress Tees will look after your needs and can them turn them around quick smart.

Get something pierced

Pick a spot on your ear, face or body and step into the back room at Unicorn Piercing. These guys stock everything from surgical steel nose rings to gold navel bars, plus they apply tooth jewels too. That’s certainly a unique souvenir.

Get a tattoo at Celebrity Ink

There’s no better way to commemorate being an adult than with a tattoo, right? Think long and hard about what you’d get permanently printed on your skin (sorry mum) then let the talented artists at Celebrity Ink do their best work. No regrets!

Take a smoothie down to the beach

What’s better than kicking back on the beach with a good book, solid soundtrack or great friends? Doing it with a refreshing, fruity smoothie in hand. Drop by Boost Juice before heading down to the iconic Surfers Paradise Beach.

Stock up on Tim Tams and toilet paper

Running low on supplies of any kind? There’s a handy Woolworths in the heart of Surfers where you can grab cheap snacks, groceries, magazines and more. In fact, Paradise Centre is loaded with essential stores to find anything and everything you need for the best Schoolies experience ever.
