Australian Timbers

Sourced exclusively from WA’s South West Region, JARRAH has become one of the most highly demanded hardwood timber around the World.  It’s strength, resistance to rot and termite attack, and natural beauty have made it popular for a wide variety of purposes.

Also in high demand locally as a lighter coloured timber is Tasmanian Oak.  In larger section timbers (thicknesses bigger than 25mm) it is commonly interchanged with Victorian Ash which has a very similar appearance to Tasmanian Oak, but it more readily available in the larger sizes.

Other local timbers that aren’t quite as common, but are truly unique and stunning to look at are:

  • Sheoak
  • Marri
  • Blackbutt (NSW)
  • Sydney Blue Gum

These timbers, and many more that we haven’t mentioned, are all availabe from Franz Building Supplies, but it’s always best to contact us first so we can see what sizes and lengths are available.
