The fourth season of The Block premiered on Monday, 20 June 2011 at 7:00 pm on the Nine Network. Host Scott Cam returned from the previous season, with Shelley Craft joining the series as "Challenge Master".

The season was ultimately won by Polly Porter and Warwick "Waz" Jones, who were the only couple to sell their property at auction.
