The 2001 Wallabies Spring tour was a series of matches played in October and November 2001 in Europe by Australia national rugby union team.

The tour was originally to include a test match in Canada, but this was cancelled due a strike by the Canadian players over the sacking of the national coach, David Clark. So two fixtures were added against an England Divisions XV and Oxford University.[1]
