Qingshui District (Chinese: 清水區; pinyin: Qīngshuǐ Qū) is a coastal suburban district in western Taichung City, Taiwan. It is located at the foothills of Ao Feng mountain and faces the Taiwan Strait. Its neighbors are Dajia, Shalu, Waipu, Shengang, and Wuqi Districts. Gao-Mei marsh is its most famous natural attraction. It is a good place to research birds, plants, and the ecology of creatures in the marsh.

The area was known previously as Gumatau (Chinese: 牛罵頭; Pe̍h-ōe-jī: Gû-mâ-thâu) and Gumasia (牛罵社; Gû-mâ-siā), which was a settlement of the Taiwanese Plains Aborigines. Also formerly called Chhau-chui-chng (臭水庄; Chhàu-chuí-chng). In 1920, the area became incorporated as Kiyomizu town (清水街), Taikō District, Taichu Prefecture.
