Welcome to our information page for WA Leavers, heading to Busselton and Dunsborough for 22 – 25 November 2021!

Leavers is an awesome time to unwind with your mates, and there’s nowhere better to relax and celebrate than Busselton and Dunsborough, in WA’s southwest. Swim and chill at the epic Beachfest at Meelup and relax in the cool vibe of the seaside town of Dunsborough. Mum and Dad can relax knowing that you’re chilling out in a safe, secure place, and that if anything goes wrong you’ve got great people here to help.

What’s on at Dunsborough Leavers

The party at the famous Dunsborough Leavers Zone runs on the Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday night 7pm-1am. It’s a drug, alcohol and smoke-free area where about 8,500 Leavers celebrate.

The zone has DJs, Silent Disco, awesome rides, chill out and movie tent, food trucks and a fully equipped medical area. The zone gets pretty hectic, with some theme nights as well, but mum and dad can relax knowing you’re in safe hands and that there’s a bus service included in your event wristband to take you back to most Busselton and Dunsborough based accommodation (see bus route).

Hit the exclusive Leavers Meelup Beachfest on the Wednesday afternoon, hosted by Royal Life Saving WA! Bring your boardies, bathers and sunscreen and get ready for a massive exclusive beach party with volleyball, beach activities, DJ, chill zones, beach tents, food trucks and the stunning Meelup Beach as backdrop. There’s also lots of shaded grass area to sit back and play some lawn games or simply chill and enjoy the down south vibes.

A guide to selecting Leavers accommodation

When it comes to Leavers, many accommodation properties across the region go the extra mile to make sure you have a fun and safe Leavers experience with your mates. Other than a bed to rest your weary head, many will include additional activities or services to supplement your Leavers experience, so make sure to ask when you make a booking.

Things to consider:

Look for accommodation operators that partner with event organisers to ensure that you have a safe and fun Leavers experience – the accommodation options listed below do just that!
Look for accommodation located within walking distance of the official Leavers bus route. Use of the bus service is included in your Leavers wristband purchase and is the best way to access the nightly Leavers Zone, Meelup Beach Day and the daytime service connecting the larger accommodation zones in Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup over the event duration. If a property is not located on the route, check if they have an optional add-on service available
Some accommodation operators will also provide in-house activities or meal options as part of the Leavers week package  – e.g. pancake breakfast, BBQs, food truck visits, late night supper
Official accommodation partners may also go to the extra effort of providing additional security or 24 hour support over Leavers – with many also reserving their property exclusively to Leavers
