Wine-ing & dining in Margaret River, Western Australia. What Is “Down South”? Perth locals often refer to anything around Busselton, Dunsborough and Margaret River as “Down South”, being south of state’s capital, Perth. From our place in Perth it took about 3.5 hours to drive to Dunsborough. Tackling this journey on a long weekend (when the rest of Perth also takes the same trip) can take a bit longer as there’s more traffic to wrestle with.
