Bill A. Walker (born 29 August 1886) was an Australian rules footballer who played for Essendon in the VFL.

Walker, also known by his nickname 'Johnnie', was recruited from the Collingwood Juniors. A ruckman, he was a member of Essendon's 1911 and 1912 premiership teams. His 14 goals in 1915 was enough to top Essendon's goal-kicking.
