The City of Bankstown is a city and Local Government Area in the Canterbury-Bankstown region of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. It consists of a number of suburbs including Bass Hill, Greenacre, Georges Hall and Milperra, among others. The City is bounded by the City of Parramatta and Auburn Council to the north, the City of Fairfield and the City of Liverpool to the west, the Sutherland Shire to the south, and the City of Canterbury, the City of Hurstville and the Municipality of Strathfield to the east.

In 2006, the NSW government released the new planning strategy for Sydney and surrounds, known as the City of Cities plan for Sydney. The plan identifies Bankstown as a 'Major Centre' for the south west Sydney region. Bankstown Airport was also identified as a 'Specialist Centre' and the Hume Highway as part of a potential transport corridor.
