Bellevue Homestead is a heritage-listed homestead currently located in Coominya, Somerset Region, Queensland, close to the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail. It was built from c. 1872 to c. 1910 and added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992.

The Bellevue property was the western part of the original Wivenhoe Run established in the 1840s which covered 38,000 acres (150 km2) on the western side of the Brisbane River valley. A large portion of this land is now under Wivenhoe Dam.

The homestead was restored by the National Trust of Queensland between 1975 and 1980 after moving the buildings from the banks of the Brisbane River to the nearby town of Coominya to avoid being flooded.

It is now privately owned.
