Why Students Should Book Dunsborough, Busselton or Margaret River for Leavers Week!

Leavers is the highly anticipated celebration that marks the end of secondary school for Western Australian students. It is a time for fun, unwinding, and creating memories with your fellow schoolies. Many school leavers flock to the picturesque coastal communities of Busselton, Dunsborough, and Margaret River, while others travel abroad to places like Bali and Thailand. Dunsborough and it’s nearby suburbs Busselton and Margaret River shines out among these exceptional locations as a perfect region for a memorable Leavers trip.

Dunsborough, a picturesque surf community, is where the magic of Leavers comes to life. Due to its close proximity to the Leavers Zone, Dunsborough becomes the focal point of the festivities and the destination of preference for school leavers from throughout Western Australia. As night falls, the Leavers Zone comes alive with as many as 8,000 students celebrating together, creating an unrivalled electric atmosphere.

The days in Dunsborough and the surrounding regions like Busselton and Margaret River are full with myriad opportunities to relax and unwind after your final exams. And not to mention the free Leavers bus connecting these suburbs during the Leavers week. Whether students choose sunbathing on pristine beaches or surfing world-famous waves, the region has everything. The region itself offers a variety of activities, ranging from boutique shopping to relaxing in hip cafés. Ensure that you secure your Leavers accommodation package well in advance, as they often sell out over a year ahead. Be sure to reserve your package through Tribe Travel, the official Leavers company.
