Serena Williams and Venus Williams were the defending champions, but Serena withdrew from the tournament (due to an injury) and Venus didn't want to participate with another player.

Virginia Ruano Pascual and Paola Suárez reached the final of the Australian Open for the second time (in 2003 they lost to Williams sisters). This time they won in the final 6–4, 6–3, against Svetlana Kuznetsova and Elena Likhovtseva.
