This is a list of members of the Victorian Legislative Council between 1967 and 1970. As half of the Legislative Council's terms expired at each triennial election, half of these members were elected at the 1964 state election with terms expiring in 1970, while the other half were elected at the 1967 state election with terms expiring in 1973.

A redistribution in 1965 saw Southern Province abolished and Boronia and Templestowe created in its place. The redistribution was carried out in a staggered manner so that in this term, there was one MLC for each of the abolished and new provinces, with the redistribution becoming complete at the 1970 election.
