The Electoral District of Mount Waverley is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It is located in the south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne and contains the suburbs of Glen Waverley, Mount Waverley and Syndal.

The seat was created prior to the 2002 election replacing the normally safe Liberal seat of Glen Waverley. When created, Mount Waverley had a notional Liberal margin of 9.1% but it was won by Labor's Maxine Morand at the 2002 election in an swing of 11.4%. It was one of four seats won by Labor on Green preferences after trailing the Liberals on the primary vote results. Liberal candidate Michael Gidley won the seat at the 2010 state election with a swing of 7.4%.
