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!
  • Preference accommodation located within walking distance of the official Leavers bus route. Use of the bus service is included in your Leavers 2022 event wristband purchase and is the best way to access the nightly Leavers Zone, Meelup BeachFest and the daytime service connecting the towns and larger accommodation zones in Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup over the four days. If a property is not located on the route, check if they are offering a private bus service – public transport, taxi’s and Uber style services are limited in regional areas and distances/costs can be prohibitive
  • 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 – make sure your read the inclusions when it comes to weighing up all the options
  • Official accommodation partners may also provide additional security or 24 hour on-site accommodation support over Leavers to keep you safe while having fun with your mates– with many also reserving their property exclusively to Leavers – take this bonus services into consideration when planning your accommodation budget
