More Views



Blackbutt is a common tree in the wild and its timber is an Australian favourite. The timber is hardy and versatile. The natural colour of Blackbutt is light, therefore making it a good choice for Boral to use for their pre finished stained timber range. Additionally, its high natural durability and strength make it popular to use as a flooring option.

Variation Disclaimer

Timber is a natural material. Variation in appearance and properties is an enticing part of designing and building with real timber! Each fibre in each plank in each project is uniquely designed by nature. We strive in good faith to present you with the most accurate portrayal of what you can expect in your timber by using images, past job portfolios, detailed information and samples, the other part of this responsibility is advising you that your timber's appearance WILL vary from these guides. Please use this information as a guide only.


Boral has been developing and producing timber products for well over a century and they remain one of the largest, most experienced and most trusted timber manufacturers in Australia. Boral offers most of the popular Australian timber species in a wide range of products including: flooring, decking, cladding and structural timber, distributed across domestic, international, residential and commercial markets.

Timber features

Timber has many natural features that tell the story of the living tree. The features seen in Blackbutt are:
• Gum Veins & gum pockets
• Insect trails
• Knots
• Surface checking
• Burrs (aka burls)


Engineered Hardwood floorboards are typically suitable for floating or direct fixing (gluing) over a flat, dry, waterproofed and structural subfloor such as plywood, particleboard, existing timber floorboards or concrete slabs. They come pre-finished with a click-lock join system and are designed to be DIY friendly for most normal dwellings. NEVER INSTALL AN ENGINEERED HARDWOOD IN WET AREAS (BATHROOM / LAUNDRY) OR OUTDOORS. If you are unsure about installation, we encourage you to contact us with questions.


Timber is a truly renewable resource, a mature tree is harvested, a young tree is planted and a few decades later is ready for harvesting again. Australia's vast forests are carefully, conservatively managed to ensure a responsible amount of wood is harvested. Timber uses a relatively small amount of energy during processing compared to other building materials like metals and concrete, the timber itself is a carbon storer and has a long working life.
