We Specialise in Spotted Gum and Ironbark Hardwood Timber


Although we supply it all, our specialty and what has built our strong reputation within the industry is our sawn, sized and dressed structural hardwood. We have our own sawmill and treatment plant and source our timber from sustainably managed forests from State Forest and private land.


Our sawn hardwood is all Durability Class 1 (above ground), F17 and TanE treated to H4 at our own treatment plant. The usual species mix is approximately 90% Spotted Gum and Ironbark with the remainder a mix of Blue Gum, Tallowwood, Mesmate, Turpentine etc depending on availability. All these timbers are renowned for their strength, durability and good looks. Of course, if you want a single species, we can do that too.



Having our own mill gives us excellent control over the supply, price, quality and availability of our sawn hardwood, and we pass this onto our customers. We carry more stock than just about anyone and this allows us to provide exceptional service.


Check out our Photo Gallery and Award Winning Projects to get a feel for the sort of jobs we do. We specialise in big and complex projects and do a stack of commercial and government work.


Gowan Lea Timbers are also proud suppliers of a range of 100% certified timber and timber products– your guarantee that these products were sourced and manufactured from sustainably managed forests situated on the Sunshine Coast and throughout QLD in Australia.


You’ll find our prices are competitive, but it will be the quality of our product and our outstanding customer service and advice that will have you coming back for more.


"It comes down to experience more than anything. Obviously we look for competitive pricing, like most businesses; but more importantly, the company wants suppliers and subcontractors who actually know what they are talking about."

Chris Stevenson, Project Manager, Hutchinson Builders

"Supply time on short contract periods was critical and we found Gowan Lea Timbers worked hard to satisfy the project timing and quality requirements. They also provided a proactive and appropriate response to site issues that arose from time to time through the project."

Rob Mowatt, Director and Construction Manager. ARK Construction Group Pty Ltd

"The personalised service we receive is particularly important to us as our project managers know that they will talk to the same person every time they ring, and that they can quickly get a response to urgent requests for material or information."
