The City of Waverley was a local government area about 20 kilometres (12 mi) east-southeast of Melbourne, the state capital of Victoria, Australia. The city covered an area of 60.86 square kilometres (23.50 sq mi), and existed from 1857 until 1994.
Waverley was first incorporated as the Oakleigh Road District in January 1857, which became the Shire of Oakleigh in December 1871. Parts of the Central and South Ridings were severed to create the Oakleigh Borough, which went on to become the City of Oakleigh, on 13 March 1891. The remainder was renamed the Shire of Mulgrave on 19 February 1897. In 1949 and 1959, further areas were annexed to the City of Oakleigh. On 14 April 1961, the Shire of Mulgrave became the City of Waverley.
The City of Waverley was subdivided into four wards on 31 May 1971, each electing three councillors:
- West Ward
- Centre Ward
- East Ward
- South Ward
- Burwood (shared with the Cities of Box Hill and Camberwell)
- Glen Waverley
- Mount Waverley
- Notting Hill
- Wheelers Hill
