Red Ironbark is a medium to large tree that grows in the dryer regions in North Central Victoria, Northern New South Wales and Eastern Queensland.
A elegant, beautiful red, Red Ironbark is recognised as one of the hardest hardwood flooring available in the world.
As one of the distinctive group of eucalypts, the Ironbarks, it can be recognised by its hard, deeply furrowed, rough bark, ranging from dark grey to black in colour.
In Australia, it has been used as a structural timber for over 200 years, due to its excellent performance in weatherexposed structural applications.
The timber’s texture is even, with an interlocking grain, making it extremely hard wearing and highly durable.
As flooring, the colour varies from light red through red/brown, to a deep crimson colour.
