Furner is a farming community bolstered by local industries of beef, wool, prime lamb, blue gums, cropping and native flowers.
Named after Luke Liddiard Furner, Member for Wallaroo and Commissioner for Public Works, the township of Furner was proclaimed in 1896. By 1899 it was home to a Council office - used as a school room, The Kintore Inn, general store and a small number of dwellings.
