Australian Beech Timber Flooring
Myrtle beech, also known as Tasmanian myrtle, is a medium-sized hardwood that mainly grows in the temperate rainforest areas of Tasmania and eastern Victoria. While its name may imply otherwise, myrtle beech has no connection to the European myrtle. The name ‘myrtle’ is believed to have come from the early timber workers.

Australian Beech Flooring Features:
The grain may be straight, interlocked or feature a wavy, fiddleback pattern. The burls add to the timber’s appeal for veneers, joinery and furniture. Pale and pink myrtle variations are also available, which are generally used for commercial applications.
Beech is a beautiful combination of highland timbers, carefully selected to create a unique colour that ranges from pale brown and golden hues to a light cream with a slightly pink tint.
These tonal variations found in Australian Beech are one of its sought-after features.
