Ladysmith is a village approximately 19 km east of Wagga Wagga in the Riverina region of New South Wales, Australia. At the 2006 census, Ladysmith had a population of 205 people.

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.

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.

Ladysmith Post Office opened on 20 November 1899.
