Southern Area Command was one of several geographically based commands raised by the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) during World War II. It was formed in March 1940, and initially controlled units based in Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia and southern New South Wales. Headquartered at Melbourne, Southern Area Command was primarily responsible for air defence, aerial reconnaissance and protection of the sea lanes within its boundaries. From 1942 its operational responsibilities excluded New South Wales. The area continued to operate following the end of the war, before being re-formed in October 1953 as Training Command under the RAAF's new functional command-and-control system.

Com quartel-general em Melbourne, era responsável pela defesa aérea, reconhecimento aéreo e protecção da rotas marítimas dentro das suas fronteiras. A partir de 1942, as suas responsabilidades operacionais deixaram de incluir Nova Gales do Sul.
