Thanks mate, unfortunately you read a lot about "Wharrams are wet boats bla,blah blah..," But ye goddes they are fun i am told. I think Fraser Island beckons for sure, foreign deck candy is also in great abundance up thataways I am led to believe.
Schoolies = School Leavers. At the end of the school year all the Grade 12s from SE Queensland congregate on the Gold Coast. The whole place is overrun with drunken yahoos.
And the NSW schoolies as well join in a week later. Basically, two weeks of "stay away from the place." then you get all the older sickos hanging around trying to take advantage of all the drunken young girls. It is a fine advert for humanity.
When somebody told me that I was delusional, I almost fell off of my unicorn.
