Bible Society NSW is an Australian Bible society, formed through an Act of the Parliament of New South Wales in 1817 and was known as the NSW auxiliary of the British and Foreign Bible Society (founded in London 1804). The Society's charter was signed by Governor Lachlan Macquarie.

Bible Society NSW is part of the worldwide fellowship of the United Bible Societies, and has its offices in Macquarie Park, north-west of Sydney's CBD. The organisation moved there from its now heritage listed building in Bathurst Street, Sydney, in 2004.

The Society's CEO is the Reverend Daniel Willis, who took up the position in late 2001.
