The 1893 South Australian Football Association season was the 17th season of the top-level Australian rules football competition in South Australia.

1893 would be the last year in existence for the Adelaide Football Club, the first Australian Rules club in South Australia. It has no relation to the modern day Adelaide Crows.

The league would stabilise from this point forward, with no clubs leaving until the Woodville and West Torrens merger in 1991.
