Oriental Bay is a suburb of Wellington, the capital city of New Zealand. Located close to the CBD on Wellington Harbour, it has the closest beach to the centre of the city and is thus a popular spot both for living and for visiting.

Oriental Bay is situated against the northern slope of Wellington, 1.5 km southeast of the city centre, at the start of a coastal route which continues past Hataitai round Evans Bay. The suburb was named after one of the first ships to bring settlers to Wellington.

According to the 2006 census, Oriental Bay has a population of slightly over a thousand people.

The Carter Fountain, situated in the bay itself, is a distinctive feature of Oriental Bay.
