Enoggera was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Queensland. It existed from 1873 to 1950 and centred on the suburb of Enoggera in Brisbane.[1]

The electorate was created by the Electoral Districts Act of 1872. From 1873 to 1878 it returned a single member. From 1878 to 1888 it became a dual member constituency (returning two members). From 1888 to 1950 it reverted to returning a single member.[1]

In 1950 an electoral redistribution resulted in the name being dropped with most of the electorate becoming the Electoral district of Kedron and the Electoral district of Mount Coot-tha.[1]
