Albert Alfred "Bert" Hoare (22 November 1874 – 25 January 1962) was an South Australian politician.
Born in Alberton, South Australia, he was educated at Port Adelaide and Mount Barker state schools. He worked as a farm labourer at Boolcunda East, near Quorn for sixteen years, and worked as shearer for 20 years. He was employed, perhaps as a storeman, at the Government workshops in Glanville, before running his own dairy farm. He returned to Government service at the Islington Workshops of the South Australian Railways.
In 1921 he contested the South Australian House of Assembly seat of Murray, but was unsuccessful. In 1922 he was elected to the Australian Senate as a Labor Senator for South Australia, succeeding Liberal Edward Vardon. He held the seat until his defeat in 1934. In 1944, he returned to politics as a Labor member of the South Australian Legislative Council, serving until 1956.
He was a prominent member of the Australian Natives' Association, a member of the Labor Party's Port Adelaide electorate committee and President of the Port Adelaide Workers' Educational Association.
