The Victoria Bridge is a bridge over the Yarra River between Richmond and Hawthorn, Melbourne, Australia. It carries Victoria Street across the Yarra.

The bridge is riveted and welded steel Warren truss bridge. It was completed in 1884. The bridge was widened in 1890 by the addition of a third line of truss on new piers on the upstream side to carry horse trams. In 1915 the bridge was further strengthened to accommodate the extra weight of electric trams and widened to accommodate two cantilever footpaths. Further widening and reconditioning of the bridge took place in 1933, including the addition of four new welded trusses.

The bridge is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register.
