The $42 million store is the fifth one to open in Canberra. The franchise already has a store in nearby Fyshwick, as well as Gungahlin, Belconnen and Tuggeranong. Bunnings has a total of 326 stores across Australia.

"The pre-opening interest in the new store has been very positive and we look forward to the continued success of Bunnings at Canberra Airport."
