orange van at the beach with a picnic set set up


Enjoy a day at the beach! With a few comfy touches, you can make any spot by the sea the perfect place to spend time.



Start by laying down a rug at your chosen spot and getting out your chilly bin and beach equipment. A rattan plant stand is a clever way to keep everything tidy and organised.

2Cushions and rattan chair

Place cushions around your rug to create comfortable spaces to sit and relax. A rattan chair is a great option for those not wanting to sit on the ground. (Cushions and blankets will make it cosy and comfortable.)

A ceramic stool is a great option for balancing food and drinks.

3Drinks trolley

Every beach outing needs a bar cart, stocked with snacks, water and sodas. Bar carts are easy to move around, and they’ll also keep (most of) the sand off any snacks.

Place drinks and glasses on the top shelf, and add any food on the lower levels, along with utensils and secured napkins.

Finish off the space with some citronella bamboo torches to keep mosquitoes away.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
