Palmerston is named after George Thomas Palmer (1784-1854) who established a settlement in the Canberra region in 1826 called Palmerville, which was later renamed Ginninderra.

It was gazetted on 20 March 1991. Streets are named after mountains and mountain ranges of Australia, with the main street called Kosciuszko Avenue.

Construction first began on a large scale in Palmerston in 1994, and the locale was one of Gungahlin's first suburbs. It now has a school, Palmerston District Primary, and the Gungahlin Town Centre, with its sports club, shopping mall and library, only a short distance away. As are Gungahlin's two lakes, Gungahlin and Yerrabi ponds, and the Gungahlin Lakes Golf Club.

Palmerston It is next to the suburbs of Nicholls, Gungahlin, Crace and Franklin. It was the second suburb to be developed in the Gungahlin district, after the industrial suburb of Mitchell. It is bounded by Gungahlin drive and Gundaroo drive.

It has a primary school, Palmerston Primary School (which opened in 1994) and a large neighbourhood oval adjacent to the school.

The Mulanggari and Gungaderra grassland nature reserves are similarly situated, meaning residents have a wide selection of prime locations for their recreational pursuits.
