Randburg is located in the northern part of Johannesburg. Formerly a separate municipality, its administration devolved to the newly created City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality, along with neighbouring Sandton and Roodepoort, in the late 1990s. During the transitional period of 1996-2000, Randburg was part of the Northern Metropolitan Local Council.

The resident demographic of Randburg tends to be more affluent than most of Johannesburg. Randburg is well known for its plethora of shopping malls and entertainment nodes, including the Brightwater Commons, Cresta Centre, Northgate and the Randburg Square (formerly Sanlam Shopping Centre) among various others.

Randburg contains numerous suburbs; many of these are residential. Some larger areas include Blairgowrie, Ferndale, Kensington B, Darrenwood, Linden, Cresta, Aldara Park, Olivedale, Randpark Ridge, Boskruin and Fairlands. Randburg is not a regulated area anymore; local citizens would roughly define the town from the southern suburbs of Linden, Northcliff and Cresta, to the north in Olivedale and Strijdom Park.

Formerly known as the Randburg Waterfront, Brightwater Commons is one of Johannesburg's better-known entertainment, restaurant and shopping centres. The Brightwater Commons is designed around the concept of an urban shopping space. The refurbishment of the Brightwater Commons demonstrates a transformation from a stark harbor and warehouse development into a welcoming small town streetscape. It is well-known for its wide selection of restaurants which offer a variety of cuisines. It also hosts a large cinema complex, a mini-golf course, a laser-paintball arena as well as a broad selection of specialty stores.

Hellenic Imperial Airways has its South Africa offices in the Holiday House in Randburg. Multichoice and its associated companies M-Net and SuperSport also have their head offices in Randburg.

History of Randburg
Randburg was founded as a town in 1959, as the amalgamation of 32 suburbs, northwest of Johannesburg. Although economically linked to Johannesburg, residents chose to create their own town council. The name Randburg was chosen in a competition, and is derived from the Rand currency, which was introduced at around the same time that the new municipality was established in 1959. Randburg was a stronghold of the National Party during the apartheid era.
