Gordonbrook mainly consists of grazing land, with irrigated crops growing close to the banks of the Stuart River. The Stuart River dissects the locality, with the large artificial lake, the Lake Gordonbrook damming the river in the northern part of the district. Very little of the area is developed with most of the land covered by bush and grazing land. Reedy Creek, a tributary of Stuart River downstream of Gordonbrook Dam, is another major waterway in the locality.
Gordon Brook Provisional School opened in 1924. On 11 September 1928 Gordon Brook South Provisional School opened and both schools operated "half time" (the full-time teacher being split between them). In 1929, Gordon Brook Provisional School closed and Gordon Brook South Provisional School continued on a full time basis. On 1 October 1938 it became Gordon Brook South State School and then closed in 1945.
In 1941 Gordonbrook Dam was constructed to provide the town of Kingaroy and its former WWII airforce base, R.A.A.F Kingaroy with a reliable water supply. In 1986, the dam was extensively upgraded, including the raising of the dam wall and spillway by two metres.
