Burradoo is a suburb of Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia, in Wingecarribee Shire. In the 2011 census, Burradoo had a population of 2,555 people.

The village is considered an expensive area in the Southern Highlands (among others including residential areas including Mount Gibraltar, Knotts Hill, Central Bowral, Kangaloon, and East Kangaloon). This is because Burradoo is home to a few historic manor houses and large modern architectural homes on small acreages. Often Burradoo is compared to parts of England largely reflected in the architecture & gardens.

Burradoo comes from an Aboriginal phrase meaning many brigalow trees.
