Big Wharf Timber For Sale
Okay - a good mate of mine spent a long time a few years ago salvaging big timber from the old Newstead Wharves in Bisbane - it was wrapped in copper and he has a full crane truck load of 10 " x 10" and other sizes. It has been stacked for about two years at Darra (in Brisbane) and is overgrown with lantana etc. He asked if I could help get rid of it for him so if there is anyone interested let me know. Most peices are 3m long and 206mm x 260mm - it would make awesome furniture and great beams or posts in feature building.Love the Bare

Hi there, first time here so hello to everyone.
As to the timber your friend has, what type, and how much does he want for it, I am assuming per piece.

No idea - he'd rather sell the lot. Anyone interested can message me if they like and I will organise an inspection.

If it's wharf timber the odds are it's Turpentine.

Do you still have timbers by any chance?
We are building a post and beam mud brick house in Kangaroo Valley and have been tyring to purchase affordable wharf or bridge timbers, no luck yet? I cringed when reading that these were to be used for landscaping.

The last post on this thread was just over two years ago... wouldn't hold your breath and it looks like they are in Brisbane.
CorbsIt's only a mistake if you don't learn from it.
