Cheltenham is an electoral district of the House of Assembly in the Australian state of South Australia. Named after the suburb of the same name, it is an 18.1 km² urban electorate in Adelaide's north-west, taking in the suburbs of Alberton, Albert Park, Athol Park, Cheltenham, Findon, Hendon, Pennington, Queenstown, Royal Park, St Clair, Woodville, Woodville South, Woodville West, and parts of Port Adelaide and Rosewater. The Cheltenham electorate is inside the federal-level electorate of Port Adelaide.

Cheltenham was created in the 1998 electoral distribution as a safe Labor seat, replacing the abolished seat of Price. In August 2001 the 17-year Price incumbent Murray De-Laine was defeated in a factional preselection in favour of current premier Jay Weatherill. De-Laine subsequently contested the 2002 election as an independent with 9.7% of the primary vote.
