Downunder: Live In Australia is a live album by Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch, released in January 2001. The concert was recorded over two nights at the Continental Café in Melbourne, Australia.

Bearing only a slight overlap with Jansch's previous live album Live at the 12 Bar in content, this was recorded on multi-track rather than straight-to-DAT, with consequently smoother sound and the rare bonus of accompanying musicians. The percussionist was added on after the gig recordings at a studio in Australia, and Jansch mixed the tracks in London.[2]
