Bunnings is a leading retailer of home improvement and outdoor living products in Australia and New Zealand and a major supplier to project builders, commercial tradespeople and the housing industry.
Bunnings team members are committed to actively supporting grass roots projects and causes in the local communities where its stores are located and helping empower people with D.I.Y skills and knowledge.
In 2019, Bunnings partnered with Landcare Australia to fund a pilot project, the Bunnings D.I.Y. Adventure. Young people were invited to take part in this community project on Great Keppel Island in Queensland to build a new boardwalk over an aboriginal midden.
Providing young people with the opportunity to actively participate in a D.I.Y. project, through the construction of a new raised boardwalk over an Aboriginal midden and protecting the Indigenous cultural heritage values of Great Keppel Island were the aims for this project.

With the success of this pilot project, Bunnings and Landcare Australia plan to continue working together on similar future projects.
