School's not out yet

IT might be shaping as one of the most popular Schoolies festivals on record, but that doesn’t mean the bell has tolled for affordable accommodation options this year.

Youth holiday specialist BookSchoolies.com has a range of Schoolies’ escapes, such as seven-night Schoolies’ holidays from $395 at Broadbeach Travel Inn.

On the Sunshine Coast, rooms start at $438 per person for seven nights at BreakFree Grand Pacific, Caloundra, and $381 at Clubb Coolum. Visit www.bookschoolies.com.
