Chigwell is a suburb in the 'northern suburbs' area of Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, Australia. The suburb is situated between the suburbs of Berriedale, Claremont and Glenlusk. The suburb shares its border with Berriedale along the Brooker Highway and the streets north of Berriedale Rd. Until the late 1990s, the suburb boundary was closer to the main road.

The area was originally made up of public housing, however much of the public housing stock has now been sold to private owners. The suburb is considered both a lower and middle class socio-economic area, typical of many of the suburbs within Glenorchy City Council
