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 had long been the most conservative seat in Brisbane. Indeed, during the Labor landslides of 2001 and 2004, it was the only non-Labor seat in Brisbane However, in recent years, it has become somewhat more marginal. At its height in 2012, the LNP sat on a majority of 23.9 percent, which was pared back to 8.2 percent in 2015 and five percent in 2017.
Most of the seat is located within the equally conservative federal seat of Ryan.
The electoral district of Moggill was created in the 1986 redistribution combining part of the electoral district of Mount Coot-tha with parts of the electoral district of Ipswich West. In 1991, a small portion east of the Centenary Highway was removed.
