Gilly's Australia is a family owned and run business, based in Perth, Western Australia. We specialise in traditional and sustainable finishes for timber.
Truly a small business success story, Gilly's Australia began as a solution to Gilly's problem of being unable to obtain a quality, effective beeswax polish available here in Australia, for her beloved antique furniture. Gilly and her husband, Chris, made the first commercially available batches of Cream Polish in their home kitchen back in 1983 as Gilly Stephenson's Old Fashioned Furniture Polish. Expanding to a range of 23 premium lines, Gilly's products are now available nationwide and overseas. In addition, we now manufacture and supply the Mezzie and Frank range of furniture paint.
Sadly, Gilly passed away in 2009 - read more about her life here.
Today, Gilly's is owned and run by three generations of the family. Maintaining the values and benefits of a being a small business, we pride ourselves on our commitment to careful, quality manufacturing and excellent, enthusiastic customer support. Now in 2023, we are celebrating 40 years in business. Read about our history here.
Our formulations are based on the best quality raw materials we can source, with a focus on Australian suppliers wherever possible - all of the beeswax we use is Western Australian, renowned worldwide for its purity.
Gilly was always passionate about nature and so are we. Our aim is to make Gilly's as environmentally sustainable as possible, with ongoing improvements across the board. We don't make a big deal about it; we just quietly get on with making conscious choices in the workplace. However, we do like to give a shout out to some of our environmentally friendly suppliers such as Who Gives a Crap, The Environmental Printing Company and Ant Packaging, who make our 100% recycled PET bottles. Our labels are printed by Brand Industry Services (you can read more about them here). We are also ordering packaging from Biogone, who offer home or landfill compostible products.

We are proud to be a partner of Carbon Neutral Pty Ltd.
