The Division of Goldstein is an Australian Electoral Division in Victoria. The division was created in 1984, when the former Division of Balaclava was abolished. It is named for Vida Goldstein, an early feminist parliamentary candidate. It is located in the bayside suburbs of Melbourne, including Beaumaris, Bentleigh, Brighton, Cheltenham and Sandringham. It is a safe seat for the Liberal Party.
