We have got Schoolies sorted

RACQ Free2Go members can save on the Gold Coast this Schoolies.

Heading down to the Gold Coast for schoolies this year? Here are our top picks for staying entertained without spending big bucks.

Crazy Cat Café

Offset those late nights with a relaxing visit to the Crazy Cat Café on Surfers Paradise Boulevard. Hang out with the café’s cats which all have their own little personalities, from affectionate and intelligent to completely crazy. Prices start at $7 and reservations are essential. 

Putt putt mini golf

Putt putt golf at Mermaid Beach is the perfect time-killer between the morning Maccas run and Surfers’ beach party. At only $10.80 for 10+ players or $13.50 for a single pass, the games are pocket change and you can score a student discount with a valid ID card.

iFly Indoor skydiving

If skydiving from 14,000ft isn’t your idea of fun but you’re still looking for some thrills, then check out iFLY indoor skydiving. The experience mimics an outdoor skydive while also being safe and fully-controlled so you can feel like a real-life hero without the death-defying stunts. Free2Go members also save $30 off selected tickets during off peak times.


Timezone is right in the middle of Cavill Mall and an easy walk from Surfers Paradise hotel. There is something for every Schoolies punter here from bowling, dodgem cars, classic arcade games and laser skirmish.

Theme parks

What’s a week at the Gold Coast without hitting the Big 5 theme parks? Dreamworld, Wet ‘n’ Wild, Movie World, Sea World and White Water World are all nearby and Free2Go members receive discounts on theme park passes.

Sky point climb

The best place to get a great view of the Goldie is undoubtedly from the Q1 building, where adventurers can experience the SkyPoint Climb. Pre-bookings are essential, but its worth it for 360-degree views from 270m in the air. Members also get 10% off tickets.

Burleigh picnic

A picnic in Burleigh is just what your Instagram feed needs. Chill out and relax at the Burleigh Heads National Park, grab a coffee, check out the boutique Village Markets and find a shady picnic spot that’s clear of the crowds. You won’t regret it.
