Alice Street is a central road in Brisbane, Australia. It is the most southern major road in the city's central business district, running parallel to the other female named streets in the city. It was named after Princess Alice of the United Kingdom.

In a pocket of land between a curve of the Brisbane River and Alice Street is the City Botanic Gardens and Parliament House. Access to the Gardens Point QUT campus and the Riverside Expressway is provided at the western end of the street.

The male-named streets from William Street to Edward Street end at intersections with Alice Street.

Brisbane Ferries operated from the eastern end as early as the 1860s.
