The England rugby team's tour of Australasia in the June 2010 saw the team play two tests against Australia, plus two mid-week games against the Australian Barbarians (essentially Australia A) and a final match against New Zealand Māori.

The tour was notable for England's 20–21 victory in the second test, which at that point was only the third time England had beaten Australia on their own soil – the other two occasions both being in 2003, one of which was the World Cup final.
