It's actually possible to do Margaret river in 1 day, depending on what you want to do there. If it's just to visit some vineyards, the chocolate factory, cheese factory etc, its possible. My friends who live in Perth do it all the time. But you have to be prepared to leave really early (5+ in the morning) and return pretty late to maximize the time you have at MR. But if the purpose of your trip is to relax, I would suggest you spend a night at MR or Bunker Bay.
Bunker Bay is gorgeous, the resort there is top notched too. My personal experience, if you have a car, whether you stay at Busselton, Yallingup or Margaret River doesn't make a difference.

Btw Petrol prices here have reached AUD$1

I think there's only 1 resort at Bunker Bay so I assume you are referring to Pullman Bunker Bay?

Wanted to try the Bunker Bay Cafe whilst I was staying there but it wasn't open

Anyone have any idea how much the taxi would cost to get from Perth International Airport at 11pm at night to Hay Street?

My mum and I will be in Perth with my uncle and aunt from Feb 20th (11pm) 2015 till 24 Feb 2015 (8am).

I think all the airport buses would have stopped service runs for the day by the time we arrive so really appreciate some help here.

Also i think our trip is kinda short so if we do not intend to rent a car is there anywhere nearby to Hay Street that we can explore?

I am female and 33 years old but my uncle,aunt and mum are in their 60's.

Thank You very much in advance.

kevin is right. Around aud50 for taxi.
Around Hay Street, try the Murray and Hay Street malls for some window shopping. Visit King's Park. You can actually walk from Hay Street but I guess the steep steps leading to the park would be difficult for your elders. Still, try to visit the park as it is IMO the best attraction within Greater Perth area.
You can also go over to visit Fremantle area for perhaps a day.

Okie thanks for the valuable advice on the travel itenairy.

Guess we will be doing a fair bit of shopping in the freemantle area and Hay and Murray street areas.

The taxi cost is really good cause when I checked the Perth airport website it said Aud $38 so I guess it hasn't been updated in a long time

Is that gonna be a deal breaker?
Surely not, right?

hmmm I see.
If it's a business trip, and there is a fair amount of traveling about, it may be worthwhile to just rent a car from the airport upon arrival, and return it when you depart. Relatively hassle-free.
Certainly beats catching the cab many times. The only issue would be parking within the CBD, which can be quite pricey.

Speaking about parking at cbd, anyone have recommendation where to park at cbd?
