What is Australian Cypress? Botanically Australian Cypress is a softwood. However, compared to most softwoods, it is a hard timber, having good impact resistance and a fine, elegant and very even texture.
With colours ranging from a soft white to golden honey colour, Australian Cypress will add value and prestige to any building. Australian Cypress grows naturally on the inland slopes and plains, from central Queensland through New South Wales.
