This is a list of Prime Ministers of Australia by age, including when they were born, what age they were when they were appointed Prime Minister, what age were they when they left the office and the age at which they died, or their current age as of 16 January 2010 if they are still alive. The table can be sorted by each different category.

The date of appointment as Prime Minister is the date on which they were sworn in by the Governor-General for their first term. The day on which they departed office is the final day of their final term. This is either the day a new Prime Minister was appointed or their date of death if they died whilst in office.

For Prime Ministers who served multiple non-consecutive terms, the length of retirement column includes the days between the non-consecutive terms. For example, Robert Menzies was a retired Prime Minister from 1941 to 1949, and again from 1966 until his death in 1978.
