Conondale is a rural village west of Maleny and 45 km west of Caloundra. The Conondale Range National Park is west and south of the village. The locality was named after the Conondale pastoral station (c1853) taken up by Donald McKenzie who had probably come from an area near the River Conon in Scotland.

Conondale is near the headwaters of the Mary River, and is one of the numerous communities in the Mary Valley. As early as 1885 the land was recognised as 'very good' in the Queenslander.
