Brisbane North was an electoral district which elected two members to the Legislative Assembly of Queensland in the Australian state of Queensland from 1888 until 1912. It replaced the electoral district of North Brisbane.

Following the Electoral Districts Act 1910, which attempted to apply one vote one value to Queensland electorates, Brisbane North was split into the seats of Brisbane and Paddington.
