Brahma Lodge is a northern suburb of Adelaide, South Australia. It is located in the City of Salisbury.


The land on which the current suburb lies was owned by Frank Reiss who, in 1960, became the first to sell his land for subdivision. The suburb was named for the trotting horse stud of the same name that had been located on the land. Brahma Lodge Post Office opened on 14 May 1962.


The suburb lies southeast of Salisbury town centre.
