Doncaster is a suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. It is in the Local Government Area of the City of Manningham. Doncaster is a suburb centred around Doncaster Hill, which is 12km east from the Melbourne central business district. The border of the suburb follows the Koonung Creek from Doncaster Road, along the south of the suburb to Wetherby Road, Wetherby Rd & Victoria St form the eastern border and the northern border follows Ruffey Creek, Williamsons Road, Manningham Rd and Ayr Street to the junction of the Koonung Creek and Doncaster Road. The major east-west road (Doncaster Road) leads from Kew to Donvale.

The Eastern Freeway terminated at Doncaster Road at the western edge of the suburb from 1983 to December 1997. As a result of a decision by the Victorian Cain Labor Government, the stage 2 section from Bulleen Road to Doncaster Road was only 2 lanes each way. During this period Doncaster suffered from heavy traffic congestion and air pollution as Doncaster Road carried 60,000 vehicles a day as a major arterial road.

Since the Kennett Government extended the Eastern Freeway along the course of the Koonung Creek to Springvale Road, Doncaster's through-traffic has dropped considerably.

Public transport advocates, such as the Public Transport Users Association have proposed the return of rail to Doncaster to service the growing high density area of Doncaster hill. Both Light and Heavy Rail options along the Eastern Freeway corridor may be considered by government in future.

In 1969, Westfield Doncaster (or "Westfield Shoppingtown Doncaster") was built on the corner of Doncaster and Williamsons Roads, and is a well-known shopping complex in Melbourne. In the early 1980s and again in the early 1990s, it was renovated and extended to its current state. From September 2006 however, it has been under construction as the centre is extended once more, due to be completed in late 2008.
