The Electoral district of Hawthorn is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It was first proclaimed in 1888 taking effect at the 1889 elections. It has usually been a safe seat for the Liberal Party and its predecessors, who have held it for all but eight years in its history (from 1940 to 1945 and 1952 to 1955).

The electorate is located to the east of Melbourne and centres on the suburb of Hawthorn, after which it is named. It also includes parts of Camberwell, Burwood and Glen Iris.
