Satisfy your hunger, thirst and lust for DIY here
Where can you get a sausage, a coffee and a screw at the one location?

At Bunnings Croydon, of course.

The place where it all happens.

The sausage can be purchased at Bunnings famous weekend sausage sizzles.

Sausage sizzle
Always near the entrance and advertising the local organisation.

Always in aid of a local charity, sporting group or any worthy cause, with the onion on the bottom of course.

They're a happy team at sizzle central.

The coffee? Most Bunnings stores have a café tucked away to revive those who have overdone their DIY aspirations. Toasties and slices are available if the sausage hasn't filled you up.

A welcome sign.

Coffees are only served in take-away containers, a vessel I almost abhor when sitting to enjoy my cappuccino.

Cafe interior
A popular part of Bunnings.

Nothing like sipping a hot coffee from a china cup, although I must admit that's a physiological aspect as the contents taste the same however served.

coffee
I had a gingerbread man with mine, or should that be ginger person.

A screw? As many as you like as long or as short as you like. You can also get nails, bolts, a hammer, screwdriver and spanner. Not to mention the thousands of other items for the would-be DIYers.

screws
One for every purpose.

Bunnings is a fascinating place to wander around, always being amazed at the range of products available.

In bunnings
Always busy.

It brings out the DIY side of us even though we know we are completely hopeless at being able to use 90% of what we see.

In Bunnings
Still busy.

Visiting a Bunnings store could be said to be the adult version of kids visiting McDonalds.

Your biggest decision is whether to get your sausage going in or coming out. Can't decide? Do both and have two.
