Henderson is made up of land that was acquired by the government in 1915 for defence purposes.

Henderson is well service by the Kwinana freeway, and is around a 40 minute drive to the CBD in Perth, Western Australia. It has easy access to the International and domestic airport.

The boundary of the area is Russell Road to its North and Cockburn Sounds to its south, the Railway freight line to the East and Dalison Avenue. The municipal boundary is with the town of Kwinana to the South. Kwinana has a significant number of people working in the Henderson area.
