Commonly known as Sydney Blue Gum, this beautiful red timber has a fantastic grain. It is also easy to work, dress and fix. It responds well to most finishes and takes a good polish, making it popular for decorative applications where moderate durability is required.

Grey Ironbark

Grey Ironbark lives up to its name thanks to its exceedingly tough and hard exterior. It is a particularly hard, strong and durable timber, with a broad range of applications, due to its resistance to lyctid borers and termites.

Botanical Name

Eucalyptus Drepanophylla, E.Paniculata, E. Siderophloia, E. Decepta


Grey Ironbark ranges from light grey or light chocolate with occasional darker reds and browns. The texture is moderately coarse and even, and the grain usually straight, and only occasionally interlocked. Grey Ironbark may have regional variations in colour, with some having black narrow to broad streaks running through the timber.
