Leavers Rottnest Island

rottnest-leavers-1Rottnest Island (Rotto) is a popular destination for locals and international travellers. It’s no surprise that school leavers flock here every November to celebrate the end of their high school life. It’s the ultimate escape from the hustle and bustle of the mainland, filled with untouched beaches and bays and an overall laid back atmosphere.

A quick 25 minute ferry ride from Fremantle will get you to Rotto and the official Leavers accommodation is a short walk from the ferry terminal. As many leavers choose Rotto for leavers celebrations the island is transformed over this time and offers an awesome vibe.

All packages include return transfers from Fremantle, festival wristband for access into the leavers parties and events both day and night and plenty of free stuff from Sure Thing Schoolies.
