東協國家與澳洲雙邊關係發展已久，澳洲是東協成立後的第一個對話夥伴國。同時期東協亦開始接受澳洲技術與軍事援助，冷戰時期的雙邊關係穩定又緊密。1990年代，東協國家與澳洲卻面臨一些問題，如澳洲總理基廷與馬來西亞首相馬哈迪的口角、澳洲干預東帝汶獨立運動等。2001年峇里島爆炸案發生後，雙邊關係更加緊繃。 東協成員與澳洲是東亞地區重要的國家之一，且其與台灣有密切的政治與經濟關係，實有深入了解雙邊關係之必要。 本文第一部分探討東協與澳洲外交政策的發展。第二部分探討雙邊關係於冷戰、後冷戰與後「九一一」等不同時期的互動與發展。最後，本文將預測未來影響雙邊關係的因素。 Bilateral relations between ASEAN and Australia have been developing for a long time.
