Australian Towns & Cities
Queensland: Fernvale
Incorporating photos and Information from Michael Greenslade's former Australian Towns, Cities and Highways site

Fernvale, located on the Brisbane Valley Highway between Esk and Ipswich, lies in a small fertile valley with its economic base mainly consisting of fruit & vegetable crops with some beef farming. The town lies just to the south of the Wivenhoe Dam wall and backs onto the Brisbane River. For an alternative and scenic route to Brisbane, motorists should follow the Brisbane Valley Hwy 5km north to the Somerset turnoff and head north towards Dundas, then east through the Cabbage Tree Range, Mt Glorious and Mt Nebo before reaching the Brisbane metro area.
