The 1881–82 Australia v England Test series was part of a first-class cricket tour of Australia, New Zealand and the United States by an England team led by Alfred Shaw. The four matches between Australia and the England team were later classified as Test matches, but are included in The Ashes which began later in 1882. The English tourists also played three other first-class matches in Australia.

The team travelled across the Atlantic first and played five matches in the USA during October. Their first match in Australia began on 23 November. Having played the first Test at the turn of the year, the team went to New Zealand and played seven matches before returning to Australia in February. The final match ended on 18 March.
