The following is a list of the prize money up for grabs at the 2014 Australian Open for men and women doubles players. The 2014 Australian Open is taking place from Monday, January 13, 2014, to Sunday, January 26, 2014.

The Australian Open is one of the four major Grand Slam tennis tournaments held annually. Winning the Australian Open, even in doubles and mixed doubles, is a major achievement for any tennis player.

The prize money at the 2014 Australian Open is far less for doubles and mixed doubles players compared to the prize money for singles players, but the doubles and mixed doubles prize money is nothing to sneeze at. A grand total of $4.7 million is up for grabs in the doubles and mixed doubles competitions at the 2014 Australian Open.

The Australian Open pays men and women tennis players equal amounts of money. All prize money shown is not cumulative, players earn only the prize money for the round they advance to. The prize money for doubles and mixed doubles players is for winning teams, so each player gets half the total prize money shown.

All prize money shown below has been converted from Australian dollars to American dollars.
