The 1995 Australian Grand Prix (officially known as the LX EDS Australian Grand Prix) was a Formula One motor race held on 12 November 1995 at the Adelaide Street Circuit, Adelaide. It was the seventeenth and final race of the 1995 Formula One season. It was the 60th Australian Grand Prix and the eleventh and last Australian Grand Prix to be held in Adelaide before moving east to the state capital of Victoria, Melbourne.
The race was contested over 81 laps, with Damon Hill dominating the race for Williams after starting from pole position in his Williams FW17B. Olivier Panis finished second in a Ligier JS41, with Gianni Morbidelli third in a Footwork FA16. It was the best result of the season for both teams and would prove to be a career high for Morbidelli, his only podium finish. Only eight drivers finished the race out of the twenty two that started, the lowest number of finishers in the 1995 season.
The race held the record for the number of people that have attended a Formula One race, with 210,000 watching the event, until 2000, when it was surpassed by the US Grand Prix at Indianapolis with 250,000. The crowd figure was inflated by rock band Bon Jovi performing the Adelaide leg of their Australian tour post-race, inside the track for which a race ticket needed to be purchased.
