Moorooka (population 8,576) is a suburb of Brisbane, the state capital of Queensland, Australia.

Moorooka has traditionally hosted a working class population stemming from its history as a manufacturing hub during World War 2. The southern part of Moorooka bordering Salisbury was the location of government built returned servicemen housing.

The suburb has mixed uses - large areas, particularly in the elevated eastern side of the suburb are residential. The lower, western side of the suburb is dominated by retail, particularly motor vehicle dealerships along Ipswich Road, known popularly throughout Brisbane as the "magic mile", light industry and warehouses.
