Another pleasant little discovery for my guests is Bunnings! What was recently intended to be a quick pop in, turned into an epic journey of interest recently.
Australians are very ‘handy’ people. Many of us enjoy the odd project, even if we haven’t mastered the skills to successfully accomplish it we still have an attitude which allows us to ‘give it a go’. Some Asian countries barely have a ‘hardware’ store at all, certainly nothing the likes of Bunnings! Skills are not demonstrated, or passed down through generations, in the home as they are here.
We take for granted our large garden spaces and forget that these are the sort of privileges which draw new Australians to our shores everyday. So if you’re feeling like taking a free and fantastic field trip with your guests, give Bunnings a go!
Don’t forget to grab a sausage!
