Beverly Hills is a suburb in southern Sydney, located 17 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district. Beverly Hills lies across two local government areas, the City of Hurstville and the City of Canterbury. It is often colloquially referred to as "Bevo".

Beverly Hills is mostly residential, consisting of many freestanding red brick and tile bungalows built in the years immediately after World War 2. Many of these feature late Art Decodesign elements. Medium density flats have been built in the areas close to King Georges Road and Stoney Creek Road.

Beverly Hills was originally known as Dumbleton after a local farm in the area, circa 1830. This name was generally disliked by residents who lobbied to supplant it with a more glamorous alternative to coincide with the arrival of the East Hills railway line, which opened 31 December 1931. The name was changed to Beverly Hills, at a time when Beverly Hills in California, USA, was becoming famous for being the home of many famous movie stars. Real estate developments followed in the 1930s and 1940s.

Beverly Hills railway station is on the East Hills/Airport line of the City Rail network.
The main road running through Beverly Hills is King Georges Road, connecting it north to Roselands and south to Hurstville. The road has palm trees running through its median strip as a nod to its Californian namesake. The other main road in Beverly Hills is Stoney Creek Road. This road intersects King Georges Road and connects Beverly Hills west to Peakhurst, Menai and east to Rockdale, Brighton-Le-Sands, Mascot and Sydney Airport.
Entrances to the M5 Motorway are located on King Georges Road, west of the shopping centre. The M5 Motorway connects east to Bexley North, Arncliffe, Sydney Airport and the Sydney CBD and west to Liverpool and Campbelltown.
