The Block 2012 was the fifth season of Australian reality television series The Block. It has a total of 65 episodes and premiered on 16 April 2012 on the Nine Network. Scott Cam and Shelly Craft returned from the previous season as hosts and were joined by judges John McGrath and Neale Whitaker and new judge Shaynna Blaze with occasional guest judge Darren Palmer, and site foreman Keith Schleiger. The series was moved from Richmond to South Melbourne.

This season retained the house renovation format (this time with terrace homes) and the Elimination Week with eight couples, both introduced in the previous season. This season also retained the "7 O'Block Weeknights" tagline and the 6:30pm timeslot every Sunday night.
