The Lockyer Creek forms part of the locality’s western boundary. Its tributary Laidley Creek forms part of the locality’s southwestern boundary with their confluence within the locality with Lockyer Creek exiting to the north-east of the locality, ultimately becoming a tributary of the Brisbane River which flows into Moreton Bay.[3]

The locality is mostly flat freehold land (approx 70 metres above sea level) used for farming, mostly growing vegetables such as onions, beetroots, broccoli and pumpkin.[3][4][5]

The Forest Hill Fernvale Road passes through the locality from south-west to northeast.[3]

Glenore Grove State School opened on 22 January 1906.[6]
