Sir Philip Oakley Fysh, KCMG (1 March 183520 December 1919) was an Australian politician, Premier of Tasmania and a member of the first federal ministry.

Fysh was born in Highbury, London and was educated at the Denmark Hill school. He obtained a position in the office of a merchant with large Australian connexions. Fysh migrated to Tasmania in 1859, becoming a leading merchant (establishing P. O. Fysh and Company), hop-grower and orchardist.

A Protectionist, Fysh was a member of the Tasmanian Legislative Council from 1866-69, 1870-73, 1884-90, and of the Tasmanian House of Assembly 1873-78 (where he was treasurer in the Alfred Kennerley ministry until March 1875) and 1894-99. Fysh became Premier and Chief Secretary of Tasmania in 1877, serving initially until 1878 and returning to the positions in 1887, serving to 1892. He was again elected to the assembly and was treasurer in Braddon's ministry from April 1894 to December 1898, when he was appointed agent-general for Tasmania at London.

Fysh took an important part in the federal movement in Tasmania. He was a representative of his colony at the 1891 and 1897 conventions, and was a member of the Australian delegation that watched the passing of the federal bill through the Imperial Parliament.

Fysh was elected to the Australian House of Representatives in 1901 as a member for Tasmania, and in 1903 as member for the Division of Denison. He was an Honorary Minister 1901-03 and Postmaster-General 1904-04. He retired in 1910. The Canberra suburb of Fyshwick is named after him.He was created K.C.M.G. in January 1896.
