Julian Howard Beale (born 10 October 1934, in Sydney) is a billionaire and former Australian federal politician. The son of former Cabinet Minister and ambassador Sir Howard Beale, Julian Beale was a member of the Australian Parliament, representing the seat of Deakin in Victoria from 1984 to 1990 and Bruce from 1990 to 1996.

Beale served the two terms as a Liberal Party of Australia member, while in opposition, before being defeated at the 1996 election following a redistribution of his seat.[1] Beale has been the Chairman of Adacel Technologies, a communications company, since 2003; and is a director of Visy Industries.

He is the father of Debbie Beale, who was married to Bill Shorten, now the Shadow Minister for Government Services, and former Leader of the Opposition in the Australian parliament.
