Mount French is a locality in the Scenic Rim Region, Queensland, Australia.

Geography

As the name suggests, the locality of Mount French includes the mountain of the same name in the western half of the locality, part of which is within the Moogerah Peaks National Park. Elevations in the western half of the locality range from 300 metres above sea level to 470 metres at Mount French South Peak and 540 metres at Mount French North Peak. The western half of the locality is mostly undeveloped bushland.

The eastern part of the locality is lower, ranging from 200 to 280 metres above sea level, and is predominantly grazing land.

Mount French is a watershed with the creeks flowing west of the mountain ultimately flowing into the Bremer River, while the creeks flowing east of the mountain ultimately flow into the Logan River.

Mount French Road runs from the Boonah-Rathdowney Road in Boonah and Dugandan to the east through the centre of the locality to the national park and then north to the North Peak.
