Glenhaven is located approximately 35 kilometres northwest of the Sydney CBD in the Shire of Baulkham Hills.

Glenhaven was originally known as Sandhurst, however, this caused some confusion with mail, as there was a suburb in Melbourne with the same name. A public meeting was held in 1894 to have the name changed to reflect its valley location. As the upper portion of the valley was known as "The Glen" and the lower portion as "The Haven", the area was to become known as Glenhaven.

Visitors to Glenhaven are offered excellent views of The Hills looking toward the Blue Mountains. The beautiful surrounds offer a variety of recreational and sporting opportunities.

The original inhabitants of the Glenhaven area were the Darug people. The Darug were the custodians of the majority of what is now the Greater Sydney region. They were divided into a number of different ‘clans’, whose quick demise upon European settlement has sadly resulted in very little information remaining on how the local area was utilised.
