The Australia cricket team toured South Africa between February and April 2018 to play four Test matches. It was the first four-Test series between the two teams since South Africa's readmission.

During the third Test, Australian batsman Cameron Bancroft was charged with ball tampering. Captain Steve Smith and Bancroft admitted the ball tampering to match referee Andy Pycroft and the media. Consequently, Smith and vice-captain David Warner stood down from the team leadership, and wicket-keeper Tim Paine was appointed acting captain for the remainder of the match and fourth Test too. On 28 March 2018, Cricket Australia (CA) banned Smith and Warner for one year, with Bancroft receiving a nine-month ban.

The following day, after the suspension of three players, Darren Lehmann, announced that he would step down from Australia's head coach, after the conclusion of the fourth Test in Johannesburg.

South Africa won the Test series by 3-1. It was the first time that South Africa had beaten Australia at home since 1970 and first series win home since readmission.
