Located on the banks of the Brisbane River, the tiny hamlet is a popular spot for fishing and camping and a welcome rest stop for people travelling to Esk and nearby Wivenhoe Dam.

Lake Wivenhoe (or Wivenhoe Dam) provides the main water supply to the city of Brisbane and holds twice as much water as Sydney Harbour. It's also a popular destination for fishermen and boat enthusiasts with a boat ramp and boat hire available at the lake.

There are good camping facilities on the shores of the lake along with barbecues, a children's playground and kiosk.

Fernvale is located in the scenic Brisbane Valley just 45 minutes' drive north-west of Brisbane.
