My partner and I (both 26 y/o) booked flights to the Gold Coast a few months ago, completely not realising our travel dates would coincide with Schoolies.
We are lucky enough to be staying out in the Currumbin rainforest for most of our visit, but also wanted to stay a few nights in Broadbeach to enjoy the night life and beach.
Can anyone recommend somewhere in that general area, or even in-land a little (we are hiring a car), that we could stay that won't be overrun by schoolies? Which hotels do not accept schoolies, or would have minimal schoolies there? The noise is our main concern, don't care if they're around is in public, but we want a peaceful hotel stay.
Any suggestions welcome. We are looking to pay max $350 per night.
Many thanks, Lauren
