Aaron Gorrell (born 31 March 1981 in Wollongong, New South Wales) is a former Australian professional rugby league footballer for the Brisbane Broncos of the NRL. He has previously played for the St George Illawarra Dragons before a spell with Catalans Dragons of Europe's Super League. His usual position is at hooker.

Gorrell was made famous by slotting in the last-minute conversion in a round 15, 2006 game against the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium. The Dragons won the match 18-16. Gorrell had converted rookie Brett Morris's try in the 78th minute after coach Nathan Brown gave him the goalkicking duties after Mathew Head had kicked the last two conversions.

In 2007 he joined Catalans Dragons for their second season in Super League. With his NRL experience he proved a key influence in the opening rounds of the season, before suffering a season-ending knee injury in round four which required a knee reconstruction. It was confirmed by the Brisbane Broncos on 27 September that Aaron Gorrell has signed with them for the 2009 season, where he will fill the vacancy left by the departing Michael Ennis.

He played his first match for Brisbane in round 1 of the 2009 NRL season.

He currently plays for and coaches the Queanbeyan Kangaroos in the Canberra Raiders cup.
