James "Jim" Page (1861 – 3 June 1921) was an Australian politician. Born in London, England, he was educated there at a Dr Barnardo's Home.[1] He served in the military from 1877 to 1883, whereupon he migrated to Australia, where he was a railway worker, unionist and labour organiser.

In 1901, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives in the first federal election, winning the Queensland rural seat of Maranoa for the Labor Party. He held the seat until his death in 1921.[2] Page's funeral was held at St John's Cathedral and he was buried in Toowong Cemetery.[3][4]
