The 1962 Australia rugby union tour of New Zealand was a series of thirteen matches played by the Wallabies in August and September 1962.

This tour was made two months after the All Blacks had toured Australia. The result of the first test was a draw but the Wallabies were defeated in the other two tests. So the Bledisloe Cup, contested for the first time since 1962 remained with New Zealand.
