How Class of 2020 enjoyed day one of Noosa Schoolies

Graduates partied the Saturday night away in fine fashion at Noosa as thousands travelled from across the state to the holiday hotspot to celebrate Schoolies.

Thousands of the Class of 2020 were expected to arrive on the holiday strip and surrounds from Saturday onwards for a week-long celebration, with official Gold Coast events cancelled due to COVID-19.

Many arrived that morning and were seen in large numbers on Noosa's Main Beach, along Gympie Terrace and Noosa River.

 

 

Hastings St and the Noosa National Park were other popular haunts for the young revellers to hang out, local authorities reported.
