Roadvale is a small village located in the Scenic Rim Region, south-east Queensland, Australia, 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) north of the principal town Boonah and 79 kilometres (49 mi) south-west of the capital Brisbane. At the 2006 census, Roadvale and the surrounding area had a population of 559.[1]

The railway reached Roadvale in 1887 and in 1915 most of the town was destroyed by fire.[2] Despite rebuilding many businesses the town has never recovered from the devastating fire.

It has a pub and a small general store in the main street, Gray Street, which is also the Roadvale-Kalbar road. Roadvale is a growing centre for many of the small crop products sold in South East Queensland and other areas.
