Charlie Gaudion (14 April 1904 – 10 October 1979)[1] was an Australian rules footballer who played with Footscray and North Melbourne in the Victorian Football League (VFL). He was the father of North Melbourne player Michael Gaudion.

Gaudion was a key position player and began his career in 1926 at Footscray.

He played with the club for four seasons before moving to the Victorian Football Association (VFA) where he signed with Coburg.

After just a year at Coburg he returned to the league and played with North Melbourne, becoming a regular in their side during the 1930s.

He was also a regular for Victoria at interstate football, playing every year from 1932 to 1936, the last as captain.

In both 1956 and 1957 he coached North Melbourne, many of those games involving his son Michael.

In the 1960s he served as players' advocate at the VFL Tribunal.[2]
