BALI has gone berserk with schoolies – with the teens’ disregard for terrorism warnings just as crazy as their drunken partying.
Thousands of overly excited schoolies making the pilgrimage abroad have touched down in Bali despite Australian Government warnings that there is a high chance they could become victims of a terrorist attack.
While Queensland’s Gold Coast remained the preferred choice to celebrate school’s end, an increasing number of Year 12 students are choosing Bali as their schoolies venue.
It is estimated that 6000 Australian school-leavers will pour into the region over the next three weeks to revel in the 32-degree heat.
Cheap airfares and accommodation, low-price booze and cigarettes, a lack of parental supervision and no enforcement of a drinking age means the first taste freedom for schoolies partying under neon lights is even sweeter.
