The Southern Tablelands is a geographic area of the State of New South Wales, Australia. This area is located west of the Great Dividing Range.

The area is characterised by flat country which has generally been extensively cleared and used for grazing purposes. The area is easily accessible to the Australian Federal capital city of Canberra in the Australian Capital Territory.

The area is included with the Southern Highlands and parts of the South West Slopes in the district that is known as Capital Country.

In a wider sense the Southern Tablelands also includes the Monaro, the Southern Highlands, New South Wales and Australia's capital Canberra.
