Schoolies Week Festival Adelaide

Victor Harbor Schoolies Week 2017

Schoolies Week at Victor Harbor is the key destination in South Australia.

There is an organised festival that is fenced and ticketed. However unlike other destinations it only runs for three days.

Just because the festival only runs for three days doesn't mean you can't celebrate for the full week.

The festival organisers are a community organisation called Encounter Youth. There is a large volunteer presence and significant safety measures built in including security.

Some accommodation do not allow schoolies so when you book ensure you inform them that you are celebrating Schoolies Week.
