Cockburn Central is the urban hub of the City of Cockburn. Relatively new and still expanding, the area has seen rapid growth in recent years and is primarily used for industrial and commercial purposes. Its population is relatively small, with just over 1,000 people residing in the area at the 2016 Census, but with apartment complexes being developed this number is likely to have expanded.
