What is Spotted Gum timber flooring?
Spotted gum is the common name for four species of Eucalyptus that grow along the east coast of Australia, from northeast Victoria to the northern tablelands of Queensland.
It is a very popular choice of flooring for many of our customers, who are drawn to the diverse range of colours, ranging from light chocolate browns to light golden browns, and the naturally dark grains running through the timber.
