Kensington is a suburb in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, 4 km north-west from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Melbourne. At the 2006 Census, Kensington had a population of 8676.

Kensington was once home to one of Victoria's major abbatoirs and livestock saleyards, as well as an army ordnance depot, and has a strong working-class history. These areas have experienced significant urban renewal since the 1970s and while it retains some industrial sections, Kensington is now primarily residential suburb in nature.

Kensington was named after Kensington in London.
