Wah Fu Estate (Chinese: 華富邨) is a public housing estate located next to Kellett Bay, Pok Fu Lam in Hong Kong's Southern District. It was built on a new town concept in 1967 and was renovated in around 2003. Divided into Wah Fu (I) Estate (華富(一)邨) and Wah Fu (II) Estate (華富(二)邨), the whole estate has a total of 18 residential blocks completed between 1967 and 1978.[1]

There are several primary and secondary schools in the estate. Some of these are the Pui Ying Secondary School, SKH Lui Ming Choi Secondary School and Caritas Chong Yut Ming Secondary School. They provide education to children in the local and surrounding areas. Funtana Theatre is the only cinema on the estate.

Current Secretary for Justice Wong Yan Lung lived here in the 1980s.
