The Very Best of the Carpenters is a compilation album by Carpenters released in 1983 by Festival Records in Australia and New Zealand (cat no. RML 52017).[1] The album spent one week at the top of the Australian albums chart in 1983.

The album was the only Oceania-exclusive compilation of the Carpenters' material released by Festival Records. Although the album is not specifically a "greatest hits" collection, several of the tracks did not reach the charts in either Australia or New Zealand: "Ticket to Ride"; "This Masquerade", as it was not a single; and "Those Good Old Dreams". "Beechwood 4-5789" was only a hit in New Zealand, reaching number 10 on the singles chart there in early 1982.[2]

On the cover of the album, "It's Going to Take Some Time" is titled "It's Going to Take Some Time This Time" and "(They Long to Be) Close to You" is simply rendered "Close to You".[1]
