Description:
The district of South Brisbane is an electoral district of the Queensland Legislative Assembly. The electorate encompasses suburbs in Brisbane's inner-south, stretching from East Brisbane to West End, and south to Fairfield. Parts of Greenslopes and Coorparoo are also located in the electorate.

South Brisbane is Queensland's oldest electorate, having been the only one of the original 16 districts to have been contested at very election. South Brisbane has generally been considered a safe seat for the Australian Labor Party since 1915. It has only been lost by the party on three occasions: the Country and Progressive National Party's 1929 landslide victory, after the 1957 Labor split, when sitting member and Premier Vince Gair quit the party to form the Queensland Labor Party and finally in 1974, at the height of the Bjelke-Petersen government's popularity. The current member, Anna Bligh, has held the seat since 1995, and has been Premier of Queensland since 2007.

South Brisbane is a strong seat in Queensland for the Greens, who have traditionally polled well there. In 2009, the Greens polled 17.4% of the primary vote.
