Australian Capital Territory—Legislative Assembly
|Territory||Australian Capital Territory|
|Area||99 km2 (38.2 sq mi)|
Yerrabi was created in 2016, when the five-electorate, 25-member Hare-Clark electoral system was first introduced for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) Legislative Assembly, replacing the previous three-electorate, 17-member system. The word "Yerrabi" is derived from an Aboriginal word in the Ngunnawal language meaning "go", "walk" or "to leave", and shares its name with Yerrabi Pond in Amaroo which is one of the main water features in the Gungahlin district.
The Yerrabi electorate comprises the entire district of Gungahlin, including the suburbs of Amaroo, Bonner, Casey, Crace, Forde, Franklin, Gungahlin, Harrison, Jacka, Moncrieff, Ngunnawal, Nicholls, Palmerston, Taylor, Throsby, the Belconnen district suburbs of Giralang and Kaleen and the Township of Hall.
When created in 2016 the Yerrabi electorate additionally included the Belconnen suburbs of Evatt, Lawson and McKellar, however following the 2019 electoral redistribution, these suburbs were transferred to the Ginninderra electorate for the 2020 ACT election, making Yerrabi the smallest ACT electorate with an area of 99 km2.
