The 2011 Australian Goldfields Open was a professional ranking snooker tournament that took place between 18–24 July 2011 at the Bendigo Stadium in Bendigo, Australia.

The event was last held in 1995 under the name Australian Masters, where Anthony Hamilton defeated Chris Small 8–6 in the final. However, Hamilton withdrew from the tournament in the qualifying rounds sighting personal reasons and therefore did not compete to defend his title.[1]

Stuart Bingham won the first ranking title of his career by defeating Mark Williams 9–8 in the final.[2]
