The Australian Sevens is a rugby union sevens tournament, that is part of the IRB Sevens World Series. The competition was held at the Adelaide Oval, South Australia until the 2010/2011 season, before moving to the Gold Coast. The inaugural competition, the 2007 Adelaide Sevens, took place on 7 and 8 April[1] and replaced the Singapore Sevens. The previous city to host an Australia Sevens tournament, in 2003, was Brisbane.

The 2011 Adelaide Sevens was the last edition of the tournament to be held in that city. In April 2011, the Australian Rugby Union announced that the country's leg of the Sevens World Series would move to Skilled Park in the Gold Coast for at least the next four years.[2] The tournament was initially renamed the "International Rugby Sevens Gold Coast",[2] but has since been rebranded as the Gold Coast Sevens.[3]
