Map of Jerrabomberra, NSW 2619

Jerrabomberra is a suburb of Queanbeyan in south eastern New South Wales, Australia. Jerrabomberra consists of three sections, The Park, The Heights, and Lakeview. The Park and the Heights are divided by Edwin Land Parkway. At the 2021 census, it had 9,601 people, up from 9,508 in 2016, 9,420 in 2011, and 8,747 in 2006. Jerrabomberra is derived from the local Aboriginal place name meaning "boy frightened by storm".

"Jerrabomberra", an area of what was then called the Limestone Plains, was purchased by John Palmer in 1827, and settled the following year. John Palmer had been a purser on the "Sirius" in the First Fleet. The area was brought to his attention because he was a brother-in-law of Robert Campbell at "Duntroon", a property about nine miles (14 km) to the north east. His property served as a centre for the Anglican Church until nearby Queanbeyan (then known by its original Aboriginal, non-Anglicised name Quinbean) was developed. The Palmer family held the property until at least the 1890s, but the property was later sub-divided into smaller farms.

In 1987, Jerrabomberra Estates Ltd, with the CEO Director Alex Brinkmeyer, whose sole vision was to create a master planned community for the region, invited Canberra-based accountant Col Alexander and Perth Millionaire Kerry Stokes, who subsequently became shareholders, to partake in this venture to develop Palmer's original land for housing. The first serviced blocks in stage one of the residential release at Jerrabomberra were released in February 1988, ranging in price from $28,000 to $39,000. The new suburb of Jerrabomberra has grown from a resident population of 8 in 1828 to over 8740 at the 2006 census.
