Daveyston is a small town in the northern Barossa Valley region of South Australia. It is adjacent to the current Sturt Highway which previously ran through the middle of the town. The town is named after Benjamin Davey who had established a mill there before the town was established.

There is a large stockfeed mill adjacent to the highway just west of the town, which is not the site of the original mill.
