South Eastern Metropolitan Region is one of the eight electoral regions in the state of Victoria, Australia, which elects five members to the Victorian Legislative Council (also referred to as the Upper House) by proportional representation. The region was created in 2006 by the 2005 reform of the Victorian Legislative Council.

The region covers the outer south eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and comprises the Legislative Assembly districts of Carrum, Clarinda, Cranbourne, Dandenong, Frankston, Keysborough, Mordialloc, Mulgrave, Narre Warren North, Narre Warren South and Rowville.

The current South Eastern Metropolitan Region elected members at the 2014 state election. The Australian Labor Party won two seats, the Liberal Party two seats, and the Victorian Greens one.
