The 1964 Australian Grand Prix was a motor race held at the Sandown Park circuit in suburban Melbourne, Victoria, Australia on 9 February 1964. The race had 19 starters.

It was the twenty ninth Australian Grand Prix and was also Round 5 of the 1964 Tasman Series and Round 1 of the 1964 Australian Drivers' Championship. Defending winner Jack Brabham won his third and last AGP.

A "science-fiction" version of the 1964 Australian Grand Prix was depicted five years before it took place in the USA film "On the Beach" (1959), based on the Nevil Shute novel of the same title.
