Steiglitz is a small town in Victoria, in the Brisbane Ranges. It is located 92 kilometres (57 mi) west of the state capital, Melbourne, Australia. At the 2016 census, Steiglitz had a population of 53.
In the early 1850s gold was found near the town, and as a consequence it grew on land belonging to pastoralists from the von Stieglitz family. Following the decline of the Australian gold rushes in the late 1870s the population of the town declined. The last gold mine in the town closed in 1941 and the population as of 2015 is just Eight People. The Steiglitz Post Office's history closely follows the town's history: it opened on 15 March 1856 and closed in 1966, and is now a private residence.
