Long Walk Home: Music from the Rabbit-Proof Fence, released in June 2002, is the fourth soundtrack and twelfth album overall by the British musician Peter Gabriel. Devised as the soundtrack to the Australian film Rabbit-Proof Fence, it was the first release of new music by Peter Gabriel since OVO, also a soundtrack.

The theme from the tracks "Ngankarrparni" and "Cloudless" recurs in the track "Sky Blue" on Gabriel's album Up and had previously been heard in the track "The Nest That Sailed The Sky" from OVO, composed for the show in the UK's Millennium Dome in 2000.
