The 1967 Australian Grand Prix was a motor race held over 45 laps of the 3.621 km (2.25 mi) Warwick Farm Raceway in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia on 19 February 1967. The race, which was open to Australian National Formula and Australian 1½ Litre Formula cars, had 15 starters.

It was the thirty-second Australian Grand Prix and doubled as round six of the 1967 Tasman Series, though it was only the fourth points race of the series as the races at Levin and Teretonga Park in New Zealand did not count for series points. Jackie Stewart started the race on pole in his BRM P261 and drove the race's fastest lap. Tasman Series points leader Jim Clark finished second in his Lotus 33, with Australian driver Frank Gardner third in his Repco Brabham BT16. Reigning World Champion Driver Jack Brabham finished fourth in his Repco Brabham BT23A.

In his victory presentation speech New South Wales Governor Sir Roden Cutler VC AK KCMG KCVO CBE aptly named the 1967 AGP as the "Scottish Grand Prix" after Scotsmen Jackie Stewart and Jim Clark finished 1–2.
