Australasian Science is a monthly science magazine published in Australia. It contains a mixture of news items and feature articles.

Australasian Science is Australia's longest-running scientific publication. It has been Australia's authority on science since 1938 when it was first published as The Australian Journal of Science by the Australian National Research Council, which was the forerunner of the Australian Academy of Science.

In 1954 the journal was transferred to ANZAAS – the Australian and New Zealand Association for the Advancement of Science. Throughout this time the journal published the research of eminent Australian scientists, including Sir Douglas Mawson and Sir Frank Macfarlane Burnet, whose groundbreaking clonal selection theory was published in the journal in 1957.

The journal has evolved considerably over the past seven decades. Following a merger in 1998 with a popular science magazine published by the University of Southern Queensland, the magazine is now published as Australasian Science. Published by Control Publications and available in newsagents, it is Australia’s only monthly science magazine for the general public, and the only magazine that is dedicated to Australian and New Zealand science.

Australasian Science's patrons are Nobel Laureate Prof Peter C. Doherty and ABC broadcaster Robyn Williams, representing excellence in science and its communication. The magazine's mission is to publish world-class science from the region's most inspiring minds. Australasian Science has the most experienced team of science journalists in Australia, and also publishes a broad range of articles from scientists writing about their own work using their own words. The magazine encourages leading scientists to write in plain language explaining the significance of their work to the general public.

Australasian Science also boasts a broad team of columnists covering astronomy, politics, biodiversity, ethics, scepticism, careers, new books and media coverage.
