I just use old hardwood fence (unpainted). Got a stack of it in the backyard.

Don't know about down the 'gong, but if you head south from Eastern Creek on Wallgrove Rd, not far from Chandos Rd is a firewood bloke who sells redgum - it burns nice & hot, and for quite a while.

Iron bark is perfect, If you can split it.
Iron bark has an Air Dried Density of around 1120 kg / M3 against around 900 kg / M3 for River red gum
