This is a list of members of the 22nd Legislative Assembly of Queensland from 1920 to 1923, as elected at the 1920 state election held on 9 October 1920.[1]

This was the first major showing of the Country Party in the Queensland parliament. In 1921, the Northern Country Party merged with the Country Party, but its two members both defected to the Nationalists who, with two former Country Party members, formed the United Party.
