Speewa is a locality in Victoria, Australia, located approximately 19 km from Swan Hill, Victoria on the Murray River. It is unusual in that it shares its name with a contiguous locality in New South Wales.

The Speewa Ferry connecting it is the only crossing of the Murray River between Swan Hill and Nyah.[2]

Speewa Post Office opened on 2 August 1924. In 1964 it was renamed as a New South Wales office.[3]
