Before European settlement, which began around 1862, the land was occupied by the Wangerriburra Clan of the Yugambeh language group. The name Yarrabilba comes from the Wangerriburra/Bundjalung language for place of song. The area contained two bora rings where ceremonies involving singing took place.
In 2010, it was announced that Yarrabilba would be the location for a future city which is expected to contain 20,000 dwellings housing up to 50,000 people. Two other new urban centres were to be established at Greater Flagstone also in Logan City and Ecco Ripley in the City of Ipswich.
As of March 2015 the urban development of Yarrabilba consists of four neighbourhoods (villages); Oak Leaf, Sunrise Crossing and Tallwoods and Vista (which contains a display village). The Darlington Parklands regional park is located between the Oak Leaf and Vista neighbourhoods on the corner of Darlington Drive and Yarrabilba Drive.
