Gosses Bluff (Gosse's Bluff) is an impact crater in Northern Territory, Australia. Today the crater measures 5 km in diameter and is 150 m high. It is located 175 km west of Alice Springs at 23°49 S 132°19 E.

The crater was created by a meteorite impact approximately 142.5 ± 0.8 million years ago in the Upper Jurassic, devastating more than 20 km˛. The original crater was about 22 km in diameter but has been reduced over time due to erosion and is exposed to the surface.
