Schoolies is living up to its notorious reputation as the wildest graduate celebration in Australia.
Online blogger Jamie Zhu went into the belly of the beast on Queensland’s Gold Coast to capture some of the annual celebration’s outrageous antics.
Footage of teenage girls kissing and sucking suggestively on the host’s microphone are peppered throughout the five-and-a-half minute video, which has been viewed more than 1.1million times.
Video has emerged on social media of school leavers celebrating Schoolies on Queensland’s Gold Coast
Rowdy Schoolies-goers have their eyebrows and entire head of hair shaved off while one party-goer sucks on her friends foot.
Chair of the Gold Coast Schoolies Advisory Group Mark Reaburn told the Gold Coast Bulletin some Schoolies-goers would get up to ‘mischief’.
‘Kids will be kids, and ultimately they have to take responsibility for their actions,’ he said.
One teenage girl bragged that she ‘f***ed a Red Frog and he was so mint.’
Red Frogs founder Andy Gourley hit back at the claim and said the organisation had to follow strict policies.
‘As per the State Government response all Red Frog volunteers come in line with the Department of Child Safety policy with Blue card and volunteer checks, are always in groups, never alone, and under the direction of a team leader.’
TV’s Love Island contestant Charlie Taylor and social media star Justin Ryan also appeared in the video as they partied on the Gold Coast.
Even the less-favourable toolies made an appearance.
Mr Gourley said the video should not be taken as an illustration of the entire Schoolies experience.
‘This hasn’t been typical behaviour for over a couple of decades now, most schoolies these days aren’t as big drinkers, and quite a few are not drinking at all.’
The vision, which has been viewed more than 1.1million times, was posted to Facebook as thousands of school leavers descended on the Gold Coast

Despite the outrageous antics, a Queensland Police Service spokeswoman said arrests were down and police were pleased with the overall behaviour.
She said only a ‘handful of schoolies’ had come to ‘police attention’ each night, a good outcome considering the huge scores of revellers that turned up to the coastal city.
Nearly 21,000 Queensland graduates showed to the rowdy celebrations during its first week, a bump up on previous years.
Next week, about 12,000 graduates from New South Wales, Victoria and New Zealand will have their turn and show up to the nightclub precinct.
