The Division of Oxley was an Australian electoral division in the state of Queensland.

By the time it was abolished in 1934, it had been redistributed to cover suburbs such as Bulimba and Murarrie.

The division was proclaimed in 1900, and was one of the original 65 divisions to be contested at the first federal election. It was named after explorer John Oxley. The Division was abolished and replaced by the Division of Griffith at the redistribution of 1 August 1934. At the redistribution of 11 May 1949, a new Division of Oxley was created in the south-western suburbs of Brisbane, primarily around Ipswich.
