Yellingbo is a town in Victoria, Australia, 48 km east from Melbourne's central business district. Its local government area is the Shire of Yarra Ranges. At the 2016 census, Yellingbo had a population of 534.
The town formed around a store opened by James Claxton in 1883 next to Woori Yallock Creek, and was initially known as "Claxton". When Claxton died his brother-in-law Henry Parslow and nephew Christopher John Parslow continued to run the store, and built a bridge over the Yarra River there, whence the town was known as "Parslow's Bridge".
The post office opened a receiving office around 1902 as "Parslow's" and a full post office in 1927 with Christopher Parslow as postmaster. In August 1946 it was renamed "Yellingbo" after the last Aboriginal resident, his name literally meaning "today" in the Woiwurrung language. The post office was closed on 23 February 1991.
