Gold Coast Schoolies party it up after chill out night

After a much-needed night of rest, Gold Coast Schoolies were back out in full force on Wednesday.

Police say it was a busy night in Surfers Paradise, with a large crowd descending on the entertainment precinct for day five of Schoolies.

Despite the amount of party-goers, there were only eight Schoolies charged with twelve offences, mainly relating to drug and public nuisance offences.


Just one schoolie was also given a liquor infringement notice for drinking in a public place.

Of the schoolies arrested, five were male and three were female.

Paramedics were also kept busy, treating 88 people within the Ambulance Treatment Centre, with five Schoolies needing transport to hospital.

Of those assessed by paramedics, 53 were female and 35 were male.
