The Tiberias Subdistrict (Arabic: قضاء طبريا‎, Hebrew: נפת טבריה‎) was one of the subdistricts of Mandatory Palestine. It was situated around the city of Tiberias.

In 1945 it was part of Galilee District.

According to the 1947 Partition Plan, the Subdistrict was to lie entirely in the Jewish State. After the 1948 Arab-Israeli War, small amounts of the territory south and east of the Sea of Galilee were conquered by the Syrian Army and became a No Man's land, while most (nearly 90%) of the subdistrict became the modern-day Kinneret County in the Northern District (Israel).
