The electoral district of Buninyong is an electoral district of the Victorian Legislative Assembly in Australia. It was created in the redistribution of electoral boundaries in 2013, and came into effect at the 2014 state election.[1]

It largely covers the area of the abolished district of Ballarat East, covering south and southeast suburbs of Ballarat as well as the rural areas to the south and east of the city. It includes the suburbs of Eureka, Canadian, Sebastopol, Mount Clear, Buninyong and Golden Point. It also includes the rural towns between Linton, Corindhap, Lethbridge, Ballan and Bungaree.[2]
