Olearia suffruticosa, commonly known as clustered daisy-bush, is a species of flowering plant in the family Asteraceae. It is a shrub to 0.7 metres high with scattered, linear leaves. The "daisy" flower heads have 14 to 20 white or pink ray florets and 18 to 28 disc florets. These occur between January and April in the species' native range.

The species was formally described in 1985. It occurs in heathland in swampy areas in South Australia, Victoria, and New South Wales. In Victoria it is restricted to locations near Casterton, Glenisla and Dergholm and is listed as "vulnerable" in the Department of Sustainability and Environment's Advisory List of Rare Or Threatened Plants In Victoria.
