Livonia Rock is a rock awash on south side of Cape Melville, on the east coast of King George Island in the South Shetland Islands of the British Antarctic Territory.

The rock was photographed from the air by the Falkland Islands and Dependencies Aerial Survey Expedition in 1956. It is named in association with the names of nineteenth-century sealers in this area; after the sealing ship Livonia (commanded by Captain Nowell) from London, which visited the South Shetland Islands in the 1821 to 1822 season.
