The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra is an Australian period instrument orchestra specialising in the performance of baroque and classical music. The orchestra's founder and artistic director is Paul Dyer.

The musicians play from original edition scores on restored or reproduced instruments of the 18th century. The orchestra was formed in 1989 and their name pays tribute to the Brandenburg concertos of JS Bach, who was central to the baroque period.

The orchestra has used the Sydney City Recital Hall as its main venue since it opened in 2000. The group makes regular appearances in the major concert halls and cultural venues of Australia, and has performed with guest artists such as Andreas Scholl, Emma Kirkby, Derek Lee Ragin, Andrew Manze, Philippe Jaroussky, Federico Guglielmo, Christina Pluhar and Elizabeth Wallfisch.
