The brown-headed honeyeater is a species of passerine bird in the family Meliphagidae.
It is endemic to Australia. Its natural habitats are temperate forests and Mediterranean-type shrubby vegetation.

The brown-headed honeyeater was first described by Vigors & Horsfield in 1827. Its species name is derived from the Latin terms ''brevis'' "short", and ''rostrum'' "beak". Five subspecies have been described. The race ''magnirostris'' from Kangaroo Island has a noticeably larger bill.
