Greg Barber (born 31 August 1966) is an Australian politician, and Greens member of the Victorian Legislative Council.

Barber obtained a Masters in Business Administration (MBA) and was a corporate campaigner for The Wilderness Society before he was elected to the Yarra City Council in 2002. He was chair of finance of the council, and in 2003 was elected Mayor. He was the first Australian Greens mayor of a local government in the country.

Barber won a seat for the Greens in the Northern Metropolitan Region of the Victorian Legislative Council in the 2006 State election.

In 2007 the Labor government introduced a bill intended to put any proposed development of nuclear reactors in Victoria to a popular referendum.Fact|date=October 2008. The bill vested a single minister with the power to frame the question and circumstances of any referendum put to the people. The Greens proposed amendments to give that power to parliament, but these were rejected by the ALP and the Nationals so the bill was not passed by the Legislative Council.
