The electoral district of Toombul was a Legislative Assembly electorate in the state of Queensland, Australia.

History[edit]

Toombul was created by the redistribution of 1877, taking effect at the 1888 colonial election, and existed until the 1932 state election.[1] It was based on the north-east suburbs of Brisbane between Breakfast Creek and Kedron Brook from Newmarket and Alderley to Moreton Bay, formerly part of the electorate of Enoggera.[1]

When Toombul was abolished in 1932, its area was incorporated into the districts of Hamilton and Nundah.[1]
