Bell Post Hill is a residential suburb of Geelong, Victoria, Australia. The origin of the suburb's name is thought to be from a lookout or warning bell on a post situated on the hill overlooking Corio Bay. The first recorded use of this bell was 1837 during a conflict with the local Aborigines.

The town has an Australian Rules football team competing in the Geelong & District Football League.
