Go Native: Focus on Ironbark
Ironbark is a popular and readily available Australian hardwood that is known for its colour and long-term performance.
One of the distinctive Australian eucalypts, Ironbark trees grow between 30-50m and have a trunk diameter of 1.5m. It can be recognised by its tough and coarse bark that has deep grooves and edges with a dark brown to black colour.
Ironbark has been a primary building material in Australia for over a century due to its strength and durability and continues to pay a significant role in infrastructure, commercial and residential projects.
