The Greatest Hits is a greatest hits album of recordings by Boney M. released by BMG in the United Kingdom in late 2001.

While the Netherlands, Belgium and Denmark celebrated Boney M's 25 year anniversary with comprehensive double albums, BMG UK opted for a one disc release, The Greatest Hits, which is an updated version of 1992's Gold - 20 Super Hits containing a new remix of 1976 break-through single "Daddy Cool", also a Top 30 hit in the UK in 2001.
While most of the tracks of this hits package are the original album versions it contains three overdubbed or remixed versions dating from Greatest Hits Of All Times - Remix '89 - Volume II, Gold - 20 Super Hits and The Most Beautiful Christmas Songs of the World.

In 2002 the compilation was issued in the United States by RCA, now a sub-label of Sony BMG, and it has also been released under the name Australia's Greatest Hits.
