This is a list of members of the South Australian Legislative Council from 1873 to 1877.

This was the fifth Legislative Council to be elected under the Constitution of 1856, which provided for a house consisting of eighteen members to be elected from the whole colony acting as one electoral district "The Province"; that six members, selected by lot, should be replaced at General Elections after four years, another six to be replaced four years later and thenceforth each member should have a term of twelve years.[1][2][3]

Seven seats were contested – six by the "effluxion of time" (Ayers, Hodgkiss, Hogarth, Mildred, Morphett and Tuxford) and one to replace John Baker, who died the previous May.[4]
