The Mundubbera – Durong Road (State Route 75) runs from north to south through the north-west of the locality. The Boyne River forms the north-eastern boundary, and the Beeron National Park occupies the south-eastern corner.
The locality's name derives from a pastoral run name held in 1856 by William Strathdee. In 1872, it was written as Beerone but by 1878 it had become Beeron.
