The south-eastern boundary of the locality is the Mount Samson Range ( The range includes Mount Kobble ( ) at a height of 384 metres (1,260 ft). The name Kobble is derived from the Waka language, Garumngar dialect, word kabul meaning carpet snake.).
The land use in the eastern part of the locality is a mixture of rural residential, grazing on native vegation and some cropping.
The locality is named after the creek with that forms part of the catchment area of Lake Samsonvale, one of the three main water-suppliers to the metropolitan region.
Kobble Creek was, in years gone by, predominantly a dairy farming community with some banana and pineapple farming on surrounding hillsides. As a farming community, Kobble Creek supported a butter factory, primary school, and railway station, the latter two located near the site of the current Samsonvale Rural Fire Brigade. Following the forced resumption of much of the best farming land in the district to build the North Pine Dam and flood Lake Samsonvale, today the district is predominantly a rural-dormitory zone with very limited farming undertaken.
Kobble Creek Provisional School opened circa 1881. On 1 January 1909 it became Kobble Creek State School. It closed in 1954.
