Moggill is an electoral district in the Legislative Assembly of Queensland in the state of Queensland, Australia. The electorate is held by the former state president of the Australian Medical Association, Christian Rowan, for the Liberal National Party of Queensland.

Moggill encompasses the suburbs on the south-western fringe of Brisbane, and is named for the suburb of Moggill. It also includes Chapel Hill, Pullenvale, Brookfield, Kenmore, Karana Downs, and Mount Crosby. It has long been the most conservative seat in Brisbane; during the Labor landslides of 2001 and 2004, it was the only non-Labor seat in the capital.

Most of the seat is located within the equally conservative federal seat of Ryan.
