Gowan Lea Timbers

Ironbark Timber

An independent timber yard in Queensland, Gowan Lea Timbers provides a range of Ironbark timber supplies on the Sunshine Coast and has been operating for over 25 years. In our timber yard, we have our own sawmill, non-CCA treatment plant, kilns, dressing shed, and can source custom oil on request.

Known for our hardwoods, our timber supplies include Ironbark and other timber and building product lines such as pine framing, plywood, engineered timber, and fibre cement products.

Our History

We began Gowan Lea Timbers over 25 years ago when we decided to open a small retail yard for timber needs on the rapidly growing Sunshine Coast of Queensland. We started with two staff members, a forklift, a flat-bed truck, and an office in a shipping container, and as we grew, we gained a solid reputation for boasting the best hardwood around. 

It didn’t take us by surprise. Our mill—Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company—had been operating for over 40 years and was already a well-respected wholesaler of premium quality western QLD Spotted Gum and Ironbark products. However, when the Queensland State Government bought out and closed Gowan Lea Sawmilling Company through a Regional Forestry Agreement process in 2007, the retail timber yard was left without a supply of the premium hardwood that our business relied upon.

It was then we entered into a productive relationship with Mary Valley Timbers, a green hardwood sawmill near Gympie, who had a similar focus on quality and cut 95% Spotted Gum and Ironbark.
