The 1977 Australian Grand Prix was a Formula 5000 race held at Oran Park Raceway and was held on 6 February.

It was the forty second Australian Grand Prix and doubled as the first round of the 1977 Rothmans International Series. Warwick Brown won his first and only AGP.

Alan Jones actually won the race 'on the road' as he finished his 58th and final lap some 40 seconds clear of Brown. However, officials had penalised Jones 60 seconds for jumping the start in his Lola T332 and he was only classified in 4th place.
