This list of great moments in Australian sport is based on media compiled lists, expert opinion, or organisational recognition. Generally the moment or event has received a great deal of media coverage or public acclaim. This list is not exhaustive and is subjective by nature. 

This list focuses on single events and performances and does not include the long term world class performances by athletes such as squash player Heather McKay, surfer Layne Beachley, and tennis player Margaret Court. These athletes and others are recognised in the Sport Australia Hall of Fame.
