Melissa Morgan (born 1 January 1985) is an Australian swimmer who specialized in backstroke events.

Morgan qualified for the women's 200-metre backstroke at the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens, by attaining both her personal record and an A-standard entry time of 2:12.90 from the Telstra Olympic Swimming Trials in Sydney. Morgan secured her spot for the semifinals, after finishing twelfth overall in the morning's preliminary heats, outside her personal record of 2:14.06. On the evening session, Morgan edged out her teammate Frances Adcock in the second semifinal run with a much faster time of 2:13.34, but failed to qualify for the final.

She is a member of the Burnside Swimming Club, and is coached and trained by Glen Berringen.
