Furner is a farming community bolstered by local industries of beef, wool, prime lamb, blue gums, cropping and native flowers.

Furner was named after Luke Liddiard Furner, Member for Wallaroo and Commissioner for Public Works. The township of Furner was first proclaimed in 1896. By 1899 it was home to a Council office used as a school room, The Kintore Inn, a general store and a small number of dwellings.

The Ken Stuckey Arboretum was established in the 1980s as a native vegetation area. This is a lovely place to visit. There is a track going into the scrub. Use caution parking or crossing the road as large trucks frequent this road.

You may wish to search for the geocaches hidden amongst the trees.
