The Jerrabomberra area has had a rich and colourful history. The word Jerrabomberra originates from the Aboriginal place name meaning ‘boy frightened by storm’. Poplars and the surrounding land has been a location where people have met and enjoyed the unique landscape for generations.
- Henry Halloran, the current land owners grandfather proposed one of the first subdivisions on the area at Environa. The 1700 blocks were marketed as ‘absolutely the nearest freehold land to the parliamentary and governments centre’.
- Larcombes, the Riverview Group and Goodwin & Kenyon teamed up to develop the land.
- Poplars Developments Pty was established.
