The countdown is on to Leavers WA 2020 with official dates proceeding for Monday 23rd to Thursday 26th November 2020. Below is an Essential Information pack for partner accommodation providers and transport support services.

Download the new-look official Leavers app

The app has undergone a massive overhaul and now includes this year’s bus and event schedule, an interactive bus route map, updated emergency info and critical informal to ensure this year’s Leavers have a fun and safe Leavers experience.

New for 2020, school leavers will need to pre-register for an event wristband via the app.

Be sure to like the Leavers Facebook  page to follow further news and updates in the lead up to this year’s dates.

Wristband Sales

A new mandatory requirement to purchase a 2020 wristband will be to pre-register via the Leavers app. The registration process will provide event organisers with mandatory contact information for contact tracing requirements as part of the COVID event plan.

Students will still need to present two forms of identification. This includes proof that they were enrolled in school (or TAFE equivalent) during the Leavers year and a form of photo ID. The pre-registration process will also provide event organisers with a contact list for mandatory event contact tracing requirements. (Those who don’t pre-register will still be able to purchase wristbands and register at time of band purchase but this will not be promoted)

Purchase locations from Sunday 22nd November:

  • South West Coachlines, 39 Albert Street Busselton
  • Dunsborough foreshore, Dunsborough


  • $110 for a four day pass – exclusive Leavers only access the Zone, Meelup Beachfest and daily transport services between Busselton, Dunsborough and Yallingup)
