The 1993 Australian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Adelaide on November 7, 1993. It was the final round of the 1993 Formula One season.

Ayrton Senna finished his six-year spell with McLaren (before joining Williams for 1994) by taking his only pole position of the season (the only pole for the season not won by Williams drivers), and his fifth victory of the year. It was the last race that Senna won. This was the last race for cars with active suspension, which was banned from the 1994 season. Having taken a Lotus to victory in the 1987 Monaco Grand Prix, Senna was the first and the last driver to win a race driving an active suspension car.

It was the last race for four-time champion Alain Prost. Senna was so overcome with emotion, knowing his great rival was retiring, that he embraced Prost on top of the rostrum. (Prost's contract with Williams initially included a clause forbidding Senna from joining the team but it expired for the upcoming 1994 season, so Prost opted to retire rather than partner Senna.) Riccardo Patrese also retired from Formula One after this event, having competed in 256 Grands Prix; a record that was only broken fifteen years later, by Rubens Barrichello.

This race marked the end of Canon's sponsorship of the Williams team, and Camel sponsorship of the Benetton team.
