While not traditionally viewed as commercial timber species, western Queensland hardwoods from managed remnant woodlands have recently found application in high-value, niche markets such as fine furniture and musical instrument manufacture. While availability, small piece size and high levels of defect will limit the potential size of the industry, the inherent beauty of the wood of several of these species will command a premium price in specialised markets. This investigation focused on characterising the extent and distribution of the resource, harvesting costs, recoveries, seasoning methods and markets, and on defining the commercial viability of production as a component of rural industries in these regions.
