Heriotdale is a suburb of Johannesburg, South Africa. The suburb lying south of Malvern and north of Rosherville, is an industrial area. It is located in Region F of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality.
Prior to the discovery of gold on the Witwatersrand in 1886, the suburb lay on land on one of the original farms called Doornfontein. Before becoming a suburb, the area was mining land with the Heriot Mine opening in 1887. After the gold was exhausted in the mine, the land was proclaimed as a suburb in October 1946.
