Bourke Place is a 224-metre (735 ft) skyscraper situated in 600 Bourke Street, Melbourne Central Business District, Victoria. It is the sixth tallest building in Melbourne and the 18th tallest building in Australia. It was completed in 1991.

Designed by the architectural firm Godfrey & Spowers, it is a modernist building. It previously served as the headquarters for BHP Billiton, and the company's sign on the outside of the structure was the highest in the country. BHP has since moved to a new building across the city in QV Village.

The building's most obvious feature on the skyline is its sloped roof, which hides various communications equipment. The structure's facade is 170,000 m² of laminated glass.

Bourke Place is home to numerous law firms, including King & Wood Mallesons, which occupies the top 11 floors, Sparke Helmore Lawyers, Gadens, and Lander & Rogers. Other tenants include Maersk Australia and Interpro.
