Peter Darley is a former Australian rules footballer who played with South Adelaide in the SANFL during the 1960s and 1970s. He is a member of the first ruck in the club's official Team of the Century called the 'Greatest Team'.

Peter Darley, who was a ruckman, played in South Adelaide's 1964 premiership side. In the subsequent years South Adelaide struggled but Darley went on to win a record seven Best and Fairest awards for the club. His awards came in 1963, 1964, 1966 to 1968 and 1972 to 1973. He came close to winning the league's Best and fairest, the Magarey Medal, on two occasions. The first was in 1964 when he was runner up and the second came in 1968 where he tied with Barrie Robran but was inelibigle due to a suspension earlier in the season for abusing an umpire.

From 1967 to 1969 he was captain-coach while in 1971 he captained the club but didn't coach. He also topped South Adelaide's goalkicking once, with 44 goals in his final season.

He represented South Australia in 13 interstate game over the course of his career including as captain in 1968 and 1970. In 1969 he was chosen in the All-Australian team for his efforts at the Adelaide Carnival.
