There is nothing urban about this NSW-Queensland border village perched high on a Richmond Range plateau with views that go on forever, deep in the heart of dairy, beef and logging country.

Ten kilometres off the Mt Lindesay Highway on the link road to the Bruxner Highway, Urbenville is in old gold fields territory about 100km south-east of Warwick.
