North Maclean is on the Mount Lindesay Highway with the Logan River as part of its eastern and southern boundary. South Maclean is immediately to the south of North Maclean. The western boundary of North Maclean is marked by the Sydney–Brisbane rail corridor.
North and South Maclean were once a single district originally known as Logan Bridge, as there was a low-level bridge across the Logan River at this location since 1860. The district later acquired the name Maclean, probably after Alexander Grant McLean, the acting Surveyor General of New South Wales from 1856—1861.
The township with blocks on both sides of the river was surveyed in 1863.
The Maclean Provisional School opened on 16 April 1926 with teacher Ruby Eunice Dunn. Later that year it was upgraded to Maclean State School. It closed in 1963.
The Tully Memorial Park on the Mount Lindesay Highway on the north bank of the Logan River ( ) provides a number of sporting fields. It also has a plaque commemorating the crossing of the Logan River by Patrick Logan in July 1828.
