White Brickie/Brick/Bush Sand

White brick sand is used for bricklaying. When used with either off-white or pure white cement, it creates a white mortar joint. You can buy your sand online here.

Yellow Brick/Brickie/Bush Sand

Yellow bush sand is used for bricklaying. This sand provides a yellow colour alternative to the white bush. It is cheaper than white bush sand, so builders and bricklayers use this sand in common brick construction where the mortar joint will be hidden or the wall rendered. Yellow bush is mostly used with grey builders cement however it can be used with off-white cement. This will provide a distinctive coloured mortar joint which goes well with certain special face bricks. You can buy your sand online here.

Newcastle / Sydney Sand

This sand is traditionally known as beach sand because it comes from coastal quarries in Newcastle and Sydney. It is a fine and dry sand used by tilers and renderers. The main difference between the brickie bush sand and the beach sand is the clay content. Brickie sand is fortified with clay giving its sticky, “fatty” quality. Beach sand has no clay content, and with its very small, fine, granular sizes it is a runny, porous sand. Tilers use it with cement to create the tile screeds. Renderers use it with cement and the addition of either lime or clay to create the renderers mud. This sand is also great for children’s sand boxes! You can buy your sand online here.

Nepean Course Sand

Nepean course sand is a runny sand with thicker granular sizes of up to 5mm. The larger granular size makes the sand mixture grade conducive to compaction. Therefore, this makes an ideal sand base for pavers. It’s course nature also makes it highly suited for the manufacture of concrete. You can buy your sand online here.

Newcastle sand is a quality fine washed sand commonly used by tilers and renderers – we highly recommend it for tiling, grouting and rendering. You can use this sand as play sand for sandpits.
