Ladysmith is a village approximately 19 km east of Wagga Wagga in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia. At the 2016 census, Ladysmith had a population of 352 people.[1]

Ladysmith was formerly within the Shire of Kyeamba until 1 January 1981 when the Shire was amalgamated with the Shire of Mitchell into the City of Wagga Wagga.[2]

The disused Wagga Wagga to Tumbarumba railway line runs through Ladysmith. Ladysmith railway station heritage precinct is maintained by the Wagga Wagga-based railway preservation group, Tumba Rail. The group is working to again operate trikes in the railway yard on weekends, hopefully in the near future.[when?]

Ladysmith Post Office opened on 20 November 1899.[3]
