Harry Cameron (born 2 August 1947 in Burren Junction, New South Wales) is an Australian former professional rugby league player for Eastern Suburbs in the New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL) competition and Wests Brisbane in the Brisbane Rugby League. He primarily played at centre.

Initially approached by Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks when he was playing for Narrabri, Cameron was eventually signed by Eastern Suburbs in 1971.[1]

Cameron was selected to represent Queensland in five games against New South Wales in 1975 and 1976.[1][2]

Cameron played in four grand finals, two with Eastern Suburbs (a loss to Manly in 1972 and a win over Canterbury in 1974) and two back-to-back wins with Wests Brisbane in 1975 and 1976.[1]
