Traveston is predominantly farm land with a small urban area to the west of the Traveston railway station on the North Coast railway line which passes through the north-eastern part of the locality from the south-east to the north-west. The Bruce Highway passes through the south-western part of the locality travelling from the south-east to the north-west. Traveston Road connects the highway to the railway station and then follows the railway line to the south-east to neighbouring Cooran.
Dairying is the main industry.
The town is believed to be named after an early settler/grazier called Traves who was in the area in the 1860s.
