Information Sheet on Australian Hardwoods

Stunning Australian Hardwoods

For a feature wall, panel or fence, nothing can beat the natural beauty of Australian hardwoods.

Several farmed species are available, these include;

Brushbox (Lophostemon confertus) Brushbox has long been sought after for its unique properties and aesthetic qualities. It has a fine and even texture with a beautiful, rich colour. It can vary in colour from a pinkish grey to a rich, reddish brown, with the sapwood distinctively paler.

Often used for flooring, kitchen trims, cabnetry and furnature, Blackbean has a dramatic grain with vains of black textures running through the grain.

Jarrah (Eucalyptus marginata) is one of the most common species of Eucalyptus tree in south western Australia. The species’ scientific name marginata refers to the light-colored vein on the border around its leaves. Because of the similar appearance of worked jarrah timber to the Honduras mahogany tree, jarrah was once called Swan River mahogany after the river system that runs through Perth. Now it is almost exclusively referred to by its aboriginal name.

Merbou is a species related to Jarrah, with a lighter texture and less dense grain.

Western Red Cedar
Thuja plicata (Western Red Cedar) is a species of thuja, an evergreen coniferous tree in the cypress family Cupressaceae, native to the northwestern United States and southwestern Canada, from southern Alaska and British Columbia south to northwest California and inland to western Montana. Western red cedar is a commercially farmed hardwood imported to Australia.

Australian hardwoods are durable and strong making them suitable for high use areas and structural requirements.

For more information on commercially available species refer to the Australian Hardwood Network Website.
