Berwick is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 37 kilometres south-east of Melbourne's CBD.

Originally a rich agricultural and pastoral area during the 1800s, Berwick developed into a satellite town of Melbourne, eventually being incorporated as a suburb of the city during the 1990s due to thriving property development in the district.

The Berwick of today is a mix of old and new. The commercial centre along High Street and adjacent streets have a 19th-century English village look, with several historic buildings, manicured gardens and streets lined with deciduous trees. The Berwick Inn, originally known as the Border Hotel, was built in 1857 and nearby is the Berwick Mechanics Institute & Free Library which moved to its present site in 1880. Berwick's former post office, with its imposing facade and arches, was built on the corner of High Street and Gloucester Avenue in 1885. Several churches around the town centre date back to the late 1800s.

A number of attractive parks are located within the town centre. There are the gardens within the wide central strip of High Street, guarded by two white lion statues in front of the war memorial at the Clyde Road junction. Pioneers Park, located in Lyall Road, is situated on the former site of the Berwick Primary School. The original school building, which dates back to 1870, has been restored and converted into a cafe and function centre. The park is almost 2 hectares in size with a bandstand rotunda, playground, pathways lined with deciduous trees and open gathering spaces.
