Graeme Gilmore (born 29 June 1945 in Launceston, Tasmania) is an Australian retired track cyclist. He is the father of Belgian racing cyclist Matthew Gilmore and brother in law of British racing cyclist Tom Simpson.

Gilmore started racing in November 1955 at the age of 10. He came second in his first race, a 1-mile event at York Park Track Launceston. He won his second race, the same month, again a 1-mile event at York Park Track. He won several juvenile and junior championships before beginning to compete for prize money at the age of 15, which in Australian at that time deemed him a professional.

In 1967 Gilmore was awarded both Australian Professional Road & Track Cyclist of the Year from "Road & Track" magazine readers, and became an inaugural member of the Tasmanian Sporting Hall of Fame. In the same year he won the Australian national road race title.[1] Gilmore was awarded Australian Cyclist of the Year 1972.

Gilmore was a successful track rider on the European Six-day racing scene.
