Albert Frederick Toll (1865-1960) was the founder of Australia and New Zealand's largest transport company, Toll Group and Toll NZ and a former mayor of Wickham, New South Wales.[1][2]

He founded Toll in 1888, when he hauled coal with a horse and a cart.[3]

He was the father of Australian novelist Dora Birtles and founding president of Lake Macquarie Yacht Club, Victor Toll. A street in the Lake Macquarie suburb Valentine, Albert Street, was named after him.[4]
