Canyonleigh ( formerly known as Canyan Leigh) is a locality in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, in Wingecarribee Shire. At the 2016 census, it had a population of 398. Canyan Leigh was named by Mrs Jane Murray who took up a property between Paddys River and Long Swamp. The property overlooked the valley and this gave Mrs Murray the idea 'Canyan' or 'Canyon' being the name for a steep sided gully.
