Rhodes is located 16 kilometres west of the Sydney central business district, in the local government area of the City of Canada Bay. Rhodes sits on a peninsula between Bray Bay and Homebush Bay, on the southern bank of the Parramatta River and is located about 3 kilometres from ANZ Stadium, Olympic Park (home of the 2000 Summer Olympics), Sydney International Aquatic Centre, Bicentennial Park and Millennium Parklands. The suburb has three distinct sections with quite different characteristics:
The eastern section, east of Concord Road, is predominantly single family detached houses and parkland. It features two residential streets which front the Parramatta River.
The central section, between Concord Road and the Main Northern railway line, is mixed commercial, single family detached dwelling residential, warehouse/office developments and community facilities.
The western section, west of the railway line, features new developments including the Rhodes Waterside Shopping Centre; many new apartment blocks; and a public foreshore walkway with two small parks.

Sydney Buses provide services (including 458 and 459) along Concord Road and Rider Boulevarde. The Ryde Bridge links Rhodes to Ryde, across the Parramatta River. Rhodes is on a major north-south road system through the suburbs of Sydney which consists of Mona Vale Road, Lane Cove Road, Concord Road, Homebush Bay Drive, Centenary Drive, Roberts Road and King Georges Road.
