Glen Huntly is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Its Local Government Area is the City of Glen Eira. The suburb was known until recently as "Glenhuntly". It has since had its name changed to reflect the history of the ship it is named after.

It is a small suburb, approximately 1 km from north to south and 800 metres east to west at its widest point. Its borders are Neerim Road in the north, Booran Road in the west, Grange Road in the east and Woodville Avenue and Oakleigh Road in the south.

Glen Huntly is named after a ship, the "Glen Huntly", that arrived in Port Phillip Bay in 1840, after setting off from Greenock, Scotland. She was carrying 190 new immigrants, skilled manual labourers who were heading for the new colony settled in Melbourne. Fever, most likely typhoid, struck the ship mid journey and only 50 people survived to reach Port Phillip Bay. The "Glen Huntly" was forced to land at Little Red Bluff (now Point Ormond) and Victoria's first quarantine station was formed to deal with the crisis. Supplies and provisions were brought down what became known as Glen Huntly Road.

Frank Penhalluriack is notable for opening his Glen Huntly hardware store outside of legislated trading hours. Penhalluriack's actions eventually led to a dramatic change in retail trading laws in Victoria, Australia.

Transport

The suburb is extensively serviced by trams, along route 67.

Glen Huntly encompasses the Glenhuntly train station.
