Mount Cameron (Chinese: 金馬倫山) is a 439-metre (1,440 ft) high hill in Hong Kong.[1] Located within the Aberdeen Country Park,[2] it was likely named for Major General William Gordon Cameron, British Army officer and former Administrator of Hong Kong.[3]

A memorial for fallen Japanese soldiers was built during the occupation of Hong Kong on a nearby hill, northwest of Mount Cameron. It was later demolished in 1947. Its location is sometimes referred to as "Mount Cameron".

It is in Wan Chai District.[4]
