The Electoral district of Hastings is an electorate of the Victorian Legislative Assembly. It was created prior to the 2002 election due to population increases in Melbourne's outer south east. It covers Hastings, Tyabb, Somerville, Pearcedale and the Casey fishing villages across to Tooradin. French Island is also included within the electoral boundary.

The seat has been held by Neale Burgess from the Liberal Party for several terms.
