Sellwood-Moreland is a neighborhood on a bluff overlooking the Willamette River in Southeast Portland, Oregon, bordering Westmoreland to the north, Eastmoreland to the east, and the city of Milwaukie to the south. Sellwood originated as an independent city, a rival of early Portland. It was annexed in 1893.

The neighborhood is linked to Southwest Portland across the Willamette by the Sellwood Bridge, the southernmost of Portland's bridges. The bridge is due for a costly replacement or renovation.

Sellwood has an amusement park named Oaks Park, many restaurants, and many upscale antique shops along the Antique Row on SE 13th Avenue.
