RAAF Base Glenbrook (ICAO: YGNB) is a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) military air base located in Glenbrook, in the Lower Blue Mountains, approximately 60 kilometres (37 mi) west of the Sydney central business district in New South Wales, Australia.
The base serves as home to Headquarters Air Command of the RAAF. There is no airfield although it has an heliport, or helicopter landing site (HLS), with most administrative services located on the nearby RAAF Base Richmond. Parts of the 28-hectare (69-acre) site are heritage-listed and comprise the Officers' Mess, once the former site of the Lapstone Hotel.
