The story behind our Ancient Redgum products is a fascinating one. This beautiful, black, shiny timber has been carbon dated at more than 5000 years old, pre-dating the ancient civilisations of Greece and Rome and the building of the pyramids. Giant Redgums which grew along the banks of the Murray River, toppled into the gravelly stream as it changed course and undermined the banks. The trees, over the centuries, absorbed the minerals and chemicals of the mud and gravel, turning from red to black and hardening in the process, delivering a sheen like polished stone to the finished products of this marvellous material. All the timber used in these products has been carbon dated and each item comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Museum of Victoria plus quality packaging that includes the story of the Ancient Redgums.
European Australia has a short history. This ancient timber is a tangible connection with a rich, natural, pre-European history and a high percentage of profit goes to further research of the Murray River area.
Ancient Redgum delivers a high quality, beautiful, intrinsically valuable and above all uniquely Australian gift.
