Doveton is a suburb in Melbourne, Australia, 31 km south-east from Melbourne's central business district. Its Local Government Area is the City of Casey.

Doveton is bounded by Dandenong Creek and Power Road in the west, The Monash Freeway in the north, Eumemmerring Creek in the east, and Princes Highway in the south.

Originally part of the Eumemmerring pastoral run in the 1830s, Doveton gained its name from prominent early settler Captain John Doveton, who remained until around 1903. (Source: Wiki)
