Trade Names: Queensland Walnut, Australian Walnut
Country of origin: Australia
Occurrence: This species is found in a very limited area in the north of the Australian state of Queensland between the Cardwell and Cairns regions.
Uses: Because Queensland Walnut is so rare, its use is limited exclusively to high-value areas, primarily, of course, veneers for high-end interior finishes. It is also used as tonewood for high-end guitar making.
Character: The heartwood of Queensland Walnut is light to dark brown, the streakiness can range from plain to very dark streaked, which is generally considered to be of higher quality. However, it is relatively rare to find figured Queensland Walnut.
Special Features: Commercial availability of Queensland Walnut lumber is currently very limited.
