The electoral district of Inala is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland in south-west Brisbane. It includes the suburbs of Inala, Ellen Grove, Carole Park, Camira, Gailes, Wacol, Darra, and Richlands. It borders the electoral districts of Mount Ommaney, Yeerongpilly, Sunnybank, Algester, Bundamba, and Moggill.
For its entire existence, it has been held by the Labor Party. Henry Palaszczuk, the seat's first member, transferred from Archerfield to Inala upon Inala's creation in 1992. He went on to become a senior minister in the Beattie government. Henry retired in 2006 and handed the seat to his daughter and current member, Annastacia Palaszczuk, who has been the Premier of Queensland since 2015.
For most of its existence, Inala has been a comfortably safe Labor seat, and on several occasions it was the safest Labor seat in the state. The only time the Labor hold on Inala was seriously threatened was in 2012, when Annastacia suffered a 14-point swing, reducing her majority to 6.2 percent. The seat reverted to form in 2015, as Palaszczuk's majority ballooned to 25 percent, the second-safest seat in the entire chamber.
