Indooroopilly is an electoral district of the Legislative Assembly in the Australian state of Queensland.

The district is based in the western suburbs of Brisbane, and straddles both sides of the Brisbane River. It is named for the suburb of Indooroopilly and also includes the suburbs of Chelmer, Fig Tree Pocket, Graceville, Sherwood, St Lucia and Taringa. After a redistribution in 2008 it now includes parts of Tennyson. It was first created for the 1992 election.

Indooroopilly is a marginal seat, having been won narrowly by Labor in three elections between 2001 and 2006. On 5 October 2008, sitting member Ronan Lee resigned from the Labor Party and defected to the Queensland Greens. Lee was defeated at the 2009 election by Liberal National candidate Scott Emerson.[1]
