1. Re: Schoolies???

on the schoolies website (http://www.schoolies.org.au/) it says that queensland schoolies week is from 18 to 26 November

courtyard by mariott is a nice property, i think it is around the 4.5 star rating. it is right in surfers paradise, above a shopping centre which has access to cavill avenue

if you want to be right in the middle of everything and also close to the beach, than it is a good choice

officially schoolies week runs from 18-26 november, however, depending on the school holidays for NSW and to a lesser extent VIC, both the week before and/or the week after the official week can be crowded,rowdy and drunken.

generally speaking the last two weeks of november, and the first week of december is when the school leavers are there.... the worst week will be the official week.

Have you booked the King Ocean Suite? If you on your honeymoon be sure to let the hotel know as they will look after you with the right bedding configuration otherwise you may end up with a twin room if no preference given.
