Burley Griffin Way is a New South Wales state route, is located in south eastern Australia. Named after the American architect, Walter Burley Griffin, designer of the cities of Canberra and Griffith, the highway links the two cities via Yass and the Barton Highway.

It provides a major link between the towns of Griffith and Yass, and then further north by the Hume Highway, including Sydney and beyond. Economically it provides a link between the agricultural produce of the western Riverina and Murrumbidgee regions and markets such as Sydney. The area it passes through is one of the richest agricultural areas in Australia. Hence, trucks make up a significant proportion of traffic using the road.

Recently, a bypass was constructed west of Bowning, and the Burley Griffin Way was realigned along this road to a new at-grade intersection with the Hume Highway.
