Streatham is a town in the Western District of Victoria, Australia, located on the Glenelg Highway, 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Ballarat, in the Rural City of Ararat. At the 2021 census, Streatham had a population of 158.

Streatham is one of the earliest settlements established in the area covered by the current-day Rural City of Ararat Council. In the 1840s the site was known as Fiery Creek, after the waterway by which it is located, but was named after Streatham, London, England, in 1852. The Post Office opened on 1 September 1844 as Fiery Creek (Streatham from 1 January 1854). Fiery Creek was the region's first Post Office and was also a meeting place for settlers.
