AboutGowan Lea

Gowan Lea Timbers is an independent, timber and building supplies merchant that has been in business on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast for over 25 years.

We have our own sawmill, non-CCA treatment plant, kilns, dressing shed and can also custom oil on request.

Known for our hardwoods, our range also includes other timber and building product lines such as pine framing, plywood, engineered timber, fibre cement products etc.

Few are able to match our knowledge, responsiveness and flexibility. Most of our specialist team has been with us for ten to 15 years. It’s the loyalty and relationship that counts.

Combined, our timber industry experience on construction projects, large and small, spans over 240 years. Read more about our history here.

If your job is out of the ordinary, ask us first and save yourself time and wasted money later on. Trouble-shooting and specifying the best timber for complex jobs is what we do best.

Our clients include local governments, national parks, commercial builders and architects, as well as homeowners seeking our expertise when it comes to specifying the best timber for the project.

Purchasing certified timber or timber products means you are purchasing timber from sustainable sources:

planted, grown and harvested in accordance with the strictest codes of practice and consistent with the world’s leading environmental standards. Gowan Lea is committed to upholding these standards of sustainability. We offer a range of 100% Chain of Custody certified timber products on request.
