The 1947 Hobart Carnival was the tenth edition of the Australian National Football Carnival, an Australian rules football interstate competition.
North Hobart Oval hosted the matches during the carnival, most of them under heavy rain. Western Australia, South Australia and the VFL were in Section A while Tasmania, New South Wales, Queensland and Canberra took part in Section B.
Western Australia caused an upset with a 4-point win over the VFL, the first time the Victorians had lost at a carnival since 1921. The VFL however claimed the Championship on percentage after easily accounting for South Australia by 76 points. Tasmania topped the Section B ladder to gain promotion to the top flight in the 1950 Brisbane Carnival.
