The white-browed crake (Amaurornis cinerea) is a species of bird in the Rallidae family. It is found in Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Fiji, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Micronesia, New Caledonia, Palau, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Samoa, Singapore, Solomon Islands, Thailand, and Vanuatu.

Its natural habitat is subtropical or tropical mangrove forests. The Iwo Jima rail, a doubtfully valid subspecies formerly native to Iwo Jima, is now extinct.
