Glenbrook was originally known as watertank due to the storage of water in
tanks for the steam trains. In 1874 the name was changed to Wascoe Siding.
In 1877 a passenger platform was erected and in 1878 the name changed to
Brookdale. In 1879, the name changed permanently to Glenbrook. The name Glenbrook is the original name given by Sir John Jamison who, exploring the Nepean, sighted a pretty brook he presumed had its headwaters in the Prince Regents Glen at Wentworth Falls, hence the name Glenbrook. The name was later conferred to the surrounding district.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
