Mount Cameron (Chinese: 金馬倫山) is a 439 m 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.

A memorial for fallen Japanese soldiers was built during the occupation of Hong Kong. It was later demolished in 1947.
