The Yerrabi electorate is one of the five electorates for the unicameral 25-member Australian Capital Territory Legislative Assembly. It will elect five members at the 2016 ACT election.


Yerrabi was created in 2016, when the five-electorate, 25-member Hare-Clark electoral system was first introduced for the Australian Capital Territory (ACT), 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",[1] and shares its name with Yerrabi Pond in Amaroo


The Yerrabi electorate consists of the districts of Gungahlin and Hall, as well as parts of northern Belconnen including the suburbs of Evatt, Giralang, Kaleen, Lawson and McKellar, and the part adjacent to the Barton Highway.
