Judith "Judy" Hopwood (born 19 June 1954), a former Australian politician, was a Member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly representing Hornsby for Liberal Party of Australia between 2002 and 2011.

She is married with two daughters. Before politics, she was a nurse at a Sydney Hospital.

Hopwood was elected as Member for Hornsby following a by-election in 2002.[1] During her time in politics, she was considered a moderate Liberal Party member. It was reported that the Liberal Right faction attempted to disendorse her in May 2006 during a purge of more moderate members.[2] She survived this push due to local support and the support of then NSW Liberal leader Peter Debnam.
