Australia competed at the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France. Three athletes were sent, and Australia competed in alpine skiing, cross-country skiing and speed skating.

Malcolm Milne, brother of Ross Milne, who died while practising for the 1964 Winter Olympics, represented Australia in alpine skiing. He gained the best results for Australia in that Olympics, and one of the best slalom results ever for any Australian male.

This was the first of six Olympics for speed skater Colin Coates.
