About us

Down South Camping & Outdoors was created in April 2004 by Steve & Roz Cummings

With outdoor activities aplenty in our beautiful region, DSC&O have a vision for the future to continue to provide excellent service and quality products at a convenient location in the heart of Margaret River.

Winner of the Margaret River Business of the Year 2011 (10 or fewer employees)

We felt the town was missing a camping, fishing, diving retailer and thus set about stocking the store with quality products that we know will help others enjoy the outdoors as much as we do.

Over the years the business has grown to now occupying a large new store on Station Road with over 350m2 of showroom floor space.

Our many achievements along the way have been runner-up Financial Management Category in the Telstra Small Business Awards 2005, runner-up Staff Development Award in the Telstra Small Business Awards 2006 & Finalist in the Margaret River Chamber of Commerce Business of the year award 2008.

“With a growing family and much community involvement DSC&O are proud sponsors of the following organisations…”

— Augusta-Margaret River Football Club
— Margaret River Golf Club
— Molloy Caravan Park fishing competition
— Hamelin Bay Salmon Fishing Competition
— Margaret River Masters Surfing Event
and many more local events, clubs and causes!
