Virgin Ground is the second album by Redgum.<ref>Redgum discography Album information</ref> The title is taken from the first track.

It was originally released as on vinyl and cassette. It was available on CD between 1990 and 1992, and has been out of print ever since, although some tracks were included on the 2004 collection Against the Grain.

This album led to the band becoming more popular, giving up their day jobs, and becoming full-time musicians.<ref>That Striped Sunlight Sound blog Virgin Ground review</ref>

The title track tells the story of the New Australia Colony established in Paraguay in 1893 by a group of Australians led by William Lane, seeking a fresh start on "virgin ground" to establish a utopian society. Other tracks offer bleak insight into current social issues including chronic unemployment, the plight of migrant women, foreign domination of Australian business and government, and the apathy of 'middle Australia'.
