About Us




We pride ourselves on the best quality Firewood and expert advice in Melbourne. J Horrigan Firewood has been servicing Melbourne’s South Eastern Suburbs for over 80 years.  We sell quality, dry Red Gum firewood and bags of kindling and wood chips. All our firewood is split on site and then rested to dry, to optimise burning. Our firewood is suitable for all fireplaces, including Victorian grates, pizza ovens and chimeneas. Larger split firewood is available upon request.


In December, our fresh trimmed Christmas Trees are delivered daily to the yard. Come in and choose your tree and we offer home delivery and a New Year pick-up service as well.



J Horrigan Firewood is a family owned and run business, established by Joe Horrigan in 1932. Since then his son, Barry and now his grandson, Mark have been operating the business out of the same shed that Joe built many years ago.

Located along the railway siding beside Malvern Central, the woodyard has become an institution in Malvern and its surrounding suburbs.  Many people are familiar with it due to its visibility from the train, as part of their commute.
