COVID-19 Response Update

A Western Australia School Leavers Strategy will still proceed in the South West from Monday 23 November 2020 through to Thursday 26 November 2020, despite the changing environment and circumstances resulting from COVID-19.

The WA Police Force and the Leavers Strategy partners, in conjunction with the Department of Health, will plan and organise activities for this year’s School Leavers, but in consideration of the current COVID-19 impacted environment. Baptist Churches WA/Green Team will not be providing the Leavers Entertainment Zone for Leavers 2020. However, planning of other events and activities are still underway and will be finalised closer to the date.

The key focus of the Leavers Strategy will remain the same – to provide harm minimisation and safety to the School Leavers and the local community of the South West.

For updates on the School Leavers schedule for Leavers week, please refer to the Leavers WA Facebook page and Leavers WA Website.

(Updated 20 July 2020)

Welcome to our information page for WA Leavers, heading to Busselton and Dunsborough for 23 – 26 November 2020!

Leavers is an awesome time to unwind with your mates, and there’s nowhere better to relax and celebrate than Busselton and Dunsborough. Swim and chill at the epic Meelup Beach Party 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 Entertainment Zone runs each night 7pm-1am. It’s a drug, alcohol and smoke-free area where about 8,500 Leavers celebrate (suspended for 2020).

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 Beach Day on the Wednesday, hosted by Royal Life Saving Society WA! Bring your boardies and bathers and get ready for a massive beach party with volleyball, resident DJ, Aqua Playground, food trucks and the stunning Meelup Beach as backdrop. There’s also lots of shaded grass area to sit back and enjoy the 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. Many will include additional activities or services to supplement your Leavers stay, so make sure to ask when you make a booking.

Criteria 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
