Red Ironbark is more reddish than Grey Ironbark which is brown. The texture is moderately coarse and even, with interlocking grain. Red Ironbark is a premium native hardwood that has always been a highly regarded timber . Indigenous Australians use it to make spear throwers and boil its bark for treating wounds.

It is a particularly hard, strong and durable timber, with a broad range of applications, due to its resistance to lyctid borers and termites.

Ironbarks are a very characteristic group of trees, aptly named after their thick, compact and hard bark. The commercially available Ironbark species are divided into Grey and Red Ironbarks.
