Kyeemagh is a suburb in southern Sydney and is located 12 kilometres south of the Sydney central business district, on the western shore of Botany Bay. Kyeemagh is in the local government area of the City of Rockdale.

Kyeemagh is an Aboriginal name meaning 'beautiful dawn'. Prior to European settlement it was part of the lands of the Cadigal people.

Kyeemagh is located on the southern bank of the Cooks River and the eastern bank of Muddy Creek. Lady Robinson Beach and Cook Park run along the eastern border. A small group of shops is located in Bestic Street near General Holmes Drive. Other parks include Kyeemagh Reserve and Lance Stoddert Reserve.

One of the three heritage-listed market gardens in the area, Occupation Road Market Gardens, is located in Kyeemagh and is amongst the oldest in New South Wales. It is amongst the last surviving examples of market gardens that flourished in Sydney, cultivated first by European settlers like the Cornish, Irish and Germans, and later by Chinese settlers.
