Fairney View and Glamorgan Vale

Fairney View is 20 km north-west of Ipswich, on the Brisbane Valley Highway. The nearest town to it is Fernvale (see separate entry). Glamorgan Vale is immediately west of Fairney View. Both are rural or rural/residential.

Fairney View was named after a pastoral property (1841), but the origin of Glamorgan Vale's name is apparently unrecorded. The Brisbane Valley railway (1884-1993) from Ipswich had a station at Fairney View.
