Ripponlea is an inner suburb of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, named after the adjoining Rippon Lea Estate. It is 7 km south-east of Melbourne's Central Business District. Its local government area is the City of Port Phillip. At the 2016 Census, Ripponlea had a population of 1,576.
Ripponlea is centred on the intersection of Glen Eira Road and Hotham Street. In terms of its cadastral division, Ripponlea is in the Parish of Prahran, within the County of Bourke.
The suburb is named after Rippon Lea Estate. After the death of Frederick Sargood in 1903, the estate's original owner, some of his property was subdivided to form the current suburb of Ripponlea.
Since 1909, Ripponlea has been the site of Caulfield Grammar School's senior school. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Ripponlea television studios were built in 1954 on land compulsorily acquired from the Rippon Lea Estate, by the Victorian State Government. The studios closed in 2017.
