The 2007 All-Australian team represents the best performing Australian Football League (AFL) players during the 2007 season. The selection panel provided the 40 leading players of the year in their playing positions at the conclusion of the home and away season before announcing the final 22 at a later date during the All-Australian Presentation Dinner. Of the 40 leading players for that year provided the leading 12 defenders were nominated with six to be chosen in the final team, the leading 12 forwards were nominated with six to be chosen in the final team and the leading 16 ruckmen and midfielders were nominated with six to be chosen in the final team. The four interchange players came from the remaining players of the group of 40. The team is honorary and does not play any games.

Nine Geelong players made it into the 2007 squad and all were picked for the team.[1]
