Timber Mood Boards: Spotted Gum

This month we are featuring spotted gum in our timber mood board series. The vibrant colour palette, grain and markings of the timber pair perfectly with rich forest greens.


Spotted gum is the common name for four species that grow along the east coast of Australia, from northeast Victoria to the northern tablelands of Queensland, with some occurrence in western areas of southern Queensland.


One of Australia’s premium native hardwoods, spotted gum has a high degree of natural durability and strength, making it an ideal timber for a variety of structural, exterior and interior applications.
