Kerry is a rural locality between Beaudesert and the Lamington National Park. The centre of the locality is where the Albert River is crossed by the Kerry Road, but for census purposes the population is counted in an area about 20 km from north to south, ending at the boundary of the national park.

The origin of the name is unrecorded, but it probably dates from early European exploration as there are a Mount Kerry and the Parish of Kerry.
