Der Alpine-Nationalpark (engl. Alpine National Park) befindet sich im australischen Bundesstaat Victoria, nordöstlich der Großstadt Melbourne. Mit einer Fläche von 6.474 km² ist er der größte Nationalpark Victorias. Sein Gebiet umfasst einen großen Teil der Hochgebirgsregion der Great Dividing Range. Er grenzt an den Kosciuszko-Nationalpark im Nachbarbundesstaat New South Wales. Der Park umfasst eine der wenigen Regionen Australiens, die im (Süd-)Winter regelmäßig Schneefall erleben.

Durch den Alpine-Nationalpark verläuft ein Teil des 655 km langen Australian Alps Walking Track, eines Fernwanderweges durch die Hochgebirgsregionen des Fünften Kontinentes.
