Around 9,000 high school leavers visit the South West each year, making planning and collaboration between businesses, the South West Leavers Planning Group, local government, WA police and the Margaret River Busselton Tourism Association essential.
MRBTA undertakes a crucial coordination role of Leavers celebrations and is the go to resource for all your leavers related questions. We liaise with MRBTA members that are planning to accommodate or service leavers; answer leavers related questions and act as an intermediary between businesses and the South West Leavers Planning Group.
A program of harm minimisation is planned, implemented and managed in collaboration with the Office of Crime Prevention, WA Police, state and local organisations, youth organisations, local accommodation providers and community members.
MRBTA relies on members to communicate what works and doesn’t work, to ensure a safe and successful leavers period.
