The First Wilson Ministry was the 10th Ministry of the Government of Western Australia and was led by Ministerialist Premier Frank Wilson. It succeeded the Moore Ministry on 16 September 1910 after Sir Newton Moore resigned to accept an appointment as Agent-General for Western Australia in London. The ministry was followed by the Scaddan Ministry on 7 October 1911 after the Ministerialists lost government at the state election held four days earlier.
