About Leavers

dunsborough-schoolies-1Sometimes a trend begins, gathers momentum and then takes off. One such trend are Leavers and Dunsborough. Each year the word spreads. If you’re finishing high school and you want to have a great week out of town, then head to the south west of WA and Dunsborough for an awesome time.

It was only a few years ago that Dunsborough seriously hit the tourist map with Leavers. The Margaret River region of Western Australia has long been popular but now that Leavers have discovered the region, it’s all roads point to Dunsborough. And no wonder as there is heaps to see and do.

dunsborough-schoolies-2The beaches are among the best in the world. The eateries from small cafes to classier restaurants have given Dunsborough a big tick. So spectacular are its natural attractions that Dunsborough has recently had The Lonely Planet put the area in the top 10 tourist destinations in the world!

Easy is the word for Dunsborough

It’s about 250km south of Perth. The drive is leisurely, the scenery spectacular and the destination laid back. It’s away from the hustle and bustle of Perth and a perfect place for Leavers to kick up their heels and party.

dunsborough-schoolies-3But being where it is, knowing the area, the best accommodation and attractions, is so important, seriously important. Every Leaver wants to know what’s happening before they arrive. They want the best location for any and all official events and parties. They want the best deal and package. And all this is possible when partnering with the best travel operator Sure Thing.

Experience and reputation are great assets to have. Follow the hundreds of Leavers who take advantage of the fabulous service on offer from Sure Thing. This is a beautiful part of the world.

All employees at Sure Thing Schoolies are Fully Accredited and Qualified.

A) As cash is tight for many Leavers, Sure Thing Schoolies provides a service where you can to reduce your bond to $100, which is very helpful as many Leavers bonds are $500 per person. The following are examples depending on the bond required from the accommodation partner. You are still liable to cover the full cost of any damages if they occur. However, this service reduces the upfront bond payable – allowing you to bring the upfront cost within reach so that you don’t miss out on your Leavers trip.

$500 required bond reduces to a $100 bond payable (Service fee $80 deducted from bond after Leavers)

$300 required bond reduces to a $100 bond payable (Service fee $40 deducted from bond after Leavers)

$250 required bond reduces to a $100 bond payable (Service fee $30 deducted from bond after Leavers)

$200 required bond reduces to a $100 bond payable (Service fee $20 deducted from bond after Leavers)

A) Leavers from 2017 paid $110 per person for a 4-day pass and this included daily access to the zone from Monday to Thursday between 7pm and 1am plus the transport is no extra. The actual price is determined upon the ticket release on a given year, therefore 2019 prices will be released closer to Leavers 2019 but the prices should be similar. The zone usually has DJ’s, a Silent Disco, awesome carnival rides like the zipper, a pamper tent, a PlayStation area, food for sale, a fully equipped medical area and much more. The ticket price also includes access to the Meelup Beach day on Wednesday which is great fun for all.

A) Thousands, and growing. New bookings are made daily and for 2019 there will be almost 10,000 Leavers attending, it will be epic.

In addition, all Sure Thing Schoolies partners have undergone accommodation approvals and safety checks have been arranged for Leavers accommodation prior to the event to ensure that quality control standards are at the level expected at Sure Thing Schoolies venues. Where applicable this has also involved getting the Tick of Approval from Environmental Health Officer of the Busselton City Council after site visits. This provides extra peace of mind, giving Leavers and their parents further reassurance of the Sure Thing quality seal of approval.

A) Generally, check-in starts from 2 pm onwards. If you get there before 2 pm you may be able to leave your bags at reception whilst you explore the area.
