Brisbane was an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Queensland from 1912 to 1977.

Based in inner central Brisbane, north of the Brisbane River, it was first created as a single member constituency for the 1912 state election, largely replacing the dual member constituency of Brisbane North. It was abolished at the 1977 state election and replaced by the new district of Brisbane Central.

It was historically a safe seat for the Labor Party.
