The suburb boundary is located along Bringelly Creek to the north and the long winding Nepean River to the west and south. The Macquarie Grove Road and the Northern Road provide part of the boundary to the east, with a series of property boundaries in the northeast. The Camden Airport is also located in the south of Cobbitty, with the University of Sydney establishing research farms in both the north and south of the area.
Cobbity Road, Coats Road and Cut Hill Road provide access to the village, the rural properties and surrounding townships. Rural residential zoned areas dominate the northern, southern and western portions of the suburb, however, contains a cluster of low density development to the eastern boundary.
Along both Macquarie Grove Road and the Northern Road, urban areas are being developed under the general residential zoning in an expansion of Oran Park (Local Centre), which is supported by the Oran Park Precinct - Growth Centres Precinct Development Control Plan.
The emerging development wraps around Denbigh, Bangor and Cluny Hill a group of homesteads, buildings and plantations in a large rural setting. The heritage-listed area is of great state significance due to the preservation of the buildings.
Cobbitty forms the outer rural area of the Campbelltown–Macarthur a Metropolitan Cluster within the Western Parkland City which will form part of the region plan for Greater Sydney. The vision for the next 20 years is to provide jobs, education, health facilities and services to more residents that live within the new Western Parkland City, drawing on the new Western Sydney Airport and Badgerys Creek Aerotropolis, and North-South Rail Link.
The growth area will create the opportunity for a Western Economic Corridor. The planning priorities and actions for improving the quality of life for residents in this growth area are set down in the Western City District Plan, our greater Sydney 2056, March 2018.
