The history of Engadine NSW dates back to pre-European times when the land was inhabited by the Dharawal people. The Dharawal people were semi-nomadic and moved across the region following the seasonal cycles of plants and animals. They had a deep connection with the land and practiced hunting and gathering to sustain their lives.

In the 19th century, European settlers arrived in the area and began to farm the land. In 1886, a railway line was constructed through the area, and a railway station was established, which led to an increase in population and development in the area. Engadine remained primarily a rural community until the mid-20th century when urbanization began to occur.
