Campbell Heath (born 1 April 1991) is an Australian rules footballer who played for Port Adelaide in the Australian Football League (AFL).

Heath was drafted to Sydney with the 61st selection in the 2008 AFL Draft. He was the second-youngest player selected.[1] and played across half-back for the Gippsland Power in the TAC Cup. Heath remained in Melbourne for the 2009 season to finish his schooling before moving to Sydney in 2010.[2]

He made his senior AFL debut in Sydney's round 9, 2010 loss to Fremantle at the Sydney Cricket Ground in May 2010.[3]

After being delisted at the conclusion of the 2011 premiership season, Heath was offered another shot by the Swans and was subsequently selected on the Rookie List. He played all year as a linchpin in the reserves' back line, taking the best forwards every week in the NEAFL. His consistent form led to him being promoted to the Seniors List at the beginning of the Swans' finals run. This would imply that he is in with a strong chance of gaining at least another year on the playing list, particularly given he has survived the first list cut in which 5 players were delisted.

He was traded to the Port Adelaide Football Club during the 2012 Trade Period citing wanting to have more opportunities at AFL level. He made his debut for Port Adelaide in Round 1, 2013, against Melbourne. Heath was delisted by Port Adelaide at the end of the 2014 season.[4]
