Brett Bowey (born 31 May 1969) is a former Australian rules footballer who played with St Kilda in the Victorian/Australian Football League (VFL/AFL).

Bowey, who was recruited locally, shared his VFL debut with future club great Robert Harvey and kicked two goals. A rover, he was a regular fixture in the St Kilda team in 1989 and 1990, putting together 19 games in each season. After making just four appearances in 1991, Bowey amassed a career high 482 disposals in the 1992 AFL season, at an average of 22.95 a game. He also took part in St Kilda's finals series and had 27 disposals in their win over Collingwood.[1][2]

He finished his career at the Chelsea Football Club in the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League and played well into in his 30s. A three time "Best and Fairest" winner, Bowey retired after Chelsea's 2006 Grand Final win.
