The Deer Park Mosque, is located in the Melbourne north-western suburb of Albanvale (adjacent to the suburb of Deer Park), in Victoria, Australia. The Deer Park mosque was built in 1993 as the religious focal point for the well established Bosnian community in Melbourne.

The roots of the Deer Park mosque go back to the 1960s when the first Bosnian Muslims in Australia gathered and established a multi-ethnic Islamic community in Carlton and Footscray.

It is supervised by the The Australian Bosnian Islamic Society.

The Deer Park Mosque is among one of the largest mosques in Australia.
