Ive got a clothes hook that I need to install on my bathroom door. It's just a standard bathroom door but I am not sure if I can just screw in the hook or do I need door anchors for it? I can't find any door anchors specifically for clothes hook at Bunnings. Any help on this?

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @effbee. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for your question.
I'd recommend using Ramset M4 x 0-5mm Hollow Wall Anchors if it is a hollow-core door. They include a hook that you won't need. Hollow core doors have a skin sheet exterior and a cardboard honeycomb interior. These anchors expand and will grip the 3mm skin of the door. If you were to use standard screws, they'd likely pull out after some use. If it is a solid-core door, then you can use standard screws to secure the hanger.
You should start by holding your hook in the position you would like to hang it. Use a pencil to mark the location of the two mounting holes on the door. Remove the hook and place two holes in the door with an 8mm drill bit at the marked locations. You should only need to drill into the door around 20mm, but be careful not to drill through the entire door. Tap the anchors with a hammer into the holes until they are flush with the door skin. Undo the screws and take them out of the anchors. Place your hook over the anchors and re-insert the screws. Tighten the screws down, so they expand the anchors.
Please let me know if you need further assistance or have questions.
