The Third Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (generally known as the ARIA Music Awards or simply The ARIAS) was held on 6 March 1989 at the Darling Harbour Convention Centre in Sydney.[1][2] First Australian host Greedy Smith of Mental As Anything was assisted by presenters George Martin and Jono & Dano to distribute 24 awards.[1] There were no live performances and the awards were not televised.[1]

Some significant changes were made for the third ARIA Awards. In addition to previous categories, "Breakthrough Artist – Single" and "Breakthrough Artist – Album" were added.[1] The ARIA Hall of Fame inducted two artists: Dame Nellie Melba and Ross Wilson.[1] An "Outstanding Achievement Award" was awarded to INXS.[1]
