Black Cockatoos

To the Aboriginal Peoples cockatoos represent illumination, they are companions and guides through darkness and accompany the deceased to the afterlife. In their creation story, the cockatoo is the first creature to ever die, and lends understanding that death is a part of transformation and immortality is gained through the process of rebirth and change. Cockatoos are important in the cycle of birth, death and rebirth, seen in their feasting, their carrying and spreading of native seeds for the next season. Black Cockatoos symbolise sacred surrendering, encouraging  the facing of fears; the practice of acceptance and going with the (inevitable) flow of life, in this way, creating spaces for more opportunities as they present themselves.

Cockatoos gather in loud squawking ‘cackles’ and are a rich symbol of partnerships, security in one's group; and their antics demonstrate the traits of mischief and curiosity.

Australian Timber Choices

Ironbark Timber

Ironbark is a distinctive Australian hardwood prized for its strength and durability. The heartwood is a deep dark red to red-brown with a fine texture.  Aboriginal People’s used ironbark to make clapsticks and spear throwers. It is a heavy and dense timber used in decking, flooring, outdoor framing, railway sleepers, shipbuilding, wharf and bridge construction. Ironbark was used in the hulls of ice-breaker ships, for carriage building, croquet mallets, gymnastic parallel bars and ninepins.

Tasmanian Oak Timber

Huon pine is an ancient and distinctive Australian timber with an extremely fine grain and a striking creamy tone. It is a highly sought after for its beauty, durability and workability.  The early timber cutters scoured the entire Tasmanian wilderness to cut and haul out huon pine logs.
