The 1931 Australia rugby union tour of New Zealand was a collection of rugby union games undertaken by the Australia team in New Zealand against invitational and national teams of New Zealand.

The Queensland Rugby Union had collapsed in 1919 and would not be reborn until 1929 leaving the New South Wales Rugby Union to administer the game in Australia at the national representative level. In 1931 finally an "all-australian" team was refounded.
