Australia Unlimited was an Australian television program, which aired from 1956 to circa 1961 on Sydney station ABN-2, with part of the run also being shown on Melbourne station ABV-2. The first episode of the series aired 7 November 1956. The series moved time-slot and day of broadcast several times. Ron Powell hosted the series for part of the run. Originally 30 minutes, it later became a 15-minute show.

Topics in early episodes of the non-fiction series (which largely focused on rural subjects) varied from snakes[1] to bonsai trees,[2] the latter considered an odd choice of subject matter by Australian Women's Weekly.

Notable as one of first series produced by ABC, information on this series is very scarce even though it ran for several years.
