Mount Bryan East is a rural locality in the Mid North region of South Australia, situated in the Regional Council of Goyder. It was established in August 2000, when boundaries were formalised for the "long established local name".

Confusingly, it does not include the former government town of Mount Bryan East, which is now located in adjacent Mount Bryan.

A school at Mount Bryan East was opened in 1885. It closed in 1916, reopened in 1925, but closed permanently in 1947.

Sir Hubert Wilkins was raised at Mount Bryan East, and attended the local school. His family home survives, having been restored from ruins by Dick Smith in 2001, and is open to visitors.
