Petvar Heights (Bulgarian: Петварски възвишения) are the heights rising to 2400 m at Mount Mullen in southeast Sentinel Range, Ellsworth Mountains in Antarctica. The heights occupy an oval shaped area with a diameter of 21 km, separated from the rest of Sentinel Range by Wessbecher Glacier to the southwest, Kasilag Pass to the west, and Kornicker Glacier to the northwest and north. Their interior is drained by Hudman, Carey, Razboyna, Gabare and Divdyadovo Glaciers.

The heights are named after the settlement of Petvar in Southern Bulgaria.
