Isisfordia (named after the discoverer; former Deputy Mayor of Isisford, Ian Duncan) (holotype QM F36211) is an extinct genus of crocodyliform closely related to crocodilians that lived during the Middle Cretaceous (Albian-Cenomanian). Its fossils were discovered in the Winton Formation in Isisford, Queensland, Australia in the mid-1990s. Most of the animal was discovered, with the exception of the front portion of the skull. On a later expedition to the location, paleontologists discovered a complete skull which differed from the original specimen in size only.

The estimate of the length of Isisfordia is about 1.1 m (3.6 feet).
