Charlie Payne (born 13 November 1944) is a former Australian rules footballer who played for Essendon in the VFL.

Payne started his VFL career as a forward, at the age of just 17, topping Essendon's goalkicking in his first two seasons, with 39 and 36 goals respectively. He was at full-forward in Essendon's 1962 premiership side but played in the back pocket in their premiership three years later. He would remain in defense for the most part of career but was also used as a follower. At the end of the 1972 season he left Essendon and joined North Adelaide.
