Midrand is situated between Centurion and Sandton. It was established as a municipality in 1981, but was incorporated the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality in 2000.

Though no longer an independent town, the name Midrand is still on common use to denote the suburbs around the N1 highway north of the Jukskei River up to the border with City of Tshwane Metropolitan Municipality. Suburbs that are generally regarded as being in Midrand include among others: Carlswald, Crowthorne, Glen Austin, Halfway House, Halfway Gardens, Kyalami, Vorna Valley and Randjesfontein.

The Midrand Graduate Institute and UNISA's Graduate School of Business Leadership is located in Midrand. Midrand is relatively modern, having experienced much growth in the last decade. Many businesses have relocated there due to its proximity to good highway links and its location in the economic centre of the Gauteng Province. Midrand's development has meant there is little break between the outskirts of Johannesburg and those of Pretoria, and the Gauteng Provincial Government envisages that, according to current growth trends, much of the province will be city by 2015. Midrand is also the location of the African Union's Pan-African Parliament and of the NEPAD secretariat.

History of Midrand
Midrand grew from two urban complexes: Halfway House and Olifantsfontein. In the early 1980s, these were joined under a single administration. Ivory Park, a planned informal settlement nearby, is an impoverished community and poverty eradication, development, job opportunities, economic growth and improved quality of life the main concerns. Ivory Park was established in 1991 to provide site and service stands to address the overflow of people from nearby Tembisa and other urban areas.

Midrand was established as a Local Municipality in 1981, but was incorporated into Region 2 of the City of Johannesburg during the late 1990's and as of 2006, when the number of regions where reduced to seven, it forms part of Region A. Midrand officially ceased to exist in 1998 when Act 15 of 1981 Town Council of Midrand Act was repealed by Act 10 of 1998 Rationalisation of Local Government Affairs Act

Though there is no longer an official Midrand, the name is still on common use to denote the suburbs around the N1 highway north of the Jukskei River up to the border with Tshwane.
