Australian Family Business

Banksia Gifts Australia (Hansen Galleries) has been owned and operated by Tony and Liz Hansen since 1985. The products are still largely hand made by Tony himself. They are very proud to offer a range of giftware that is natural, hand made, unique, functional and Australian Made.

Where it all begins

We use a particular type of Banksia called ‘Grandis’. It is also commonly known as Bull Banksia or Giant Banksia. This variety grows particularly large and has a very dense centre making it ideal for woodturning.

The tree itself will grow to approximately 10 metres, it produces brilliant yellow flowers followed by the large seed pod. In the extreme temperatures of the Western Australian Bush the pods open up to release seeds for regermination.
