Glenbrook is a rural and industrial area in the Franklin district of New Zealand.

The industrial site, that of New Zealand's major steel mill, New Zealand Steel, is not located close to any towns - the surrounding countryside is occupied by huge farms. The nearest towns are Waiuku, five kilometres to the south, and Pukekohe, 15 kilometres to the east.

Glenbrook's other claim to fame is the Glenbrook Vintage Railway.
