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.
