Yangan is a rural town, popular for the high quality sandstone found in the region. Located 18 km east of Warwick and 120 km south-west of Brisbane.
In the late 1860s farms started emerging in the region, and an intake of Danish farmers saw significant growth in the region. Saw pits and mills were established, and sandstone was quarried about one kilometre out of town. Since then Yangan sandstone has grown in popularity both domestically and internationally. Yangan sandstone reserves are expected to provide premium boulders and rocks for hundreds of years to come.
