The Barony of River Haven is based in North Brisbane and unclaimed Queensland, Australia. River Haven, along with Saint-Florian-de-la-rivière and the Shire of Willoughby Vale, is one of the groups that makes up the region in Lochac referred to as the Northern Reaches.
The group was initially formed on 3 September 1983 with ten founding members, and was elevated to Baronial status in 1986. Everard de Brieuse and Johanna Wendover are Baron and Baroness River Haven – that is, the founding Baronage of River Haven.
