Kim Dion Booth (born 1951) is a former Australian politician. He was the leader of the Tasmanian Greens from April 2014 to May 2015, and represented the Division of Bass in the Tasmanian House of Assembly.
After the 2010 Tasmanian state election, Booth refused to support the Greens-Labor deal, warning that the deal with Labor would hurt the Greens. He held the Greens portfolios of Forests; Energy; Attorney-General and Justice; Small Business; Industry; Racing and Gaming; and Veterans Affairs.
On 20 May 2015, Booth announced he was resigning from Parliament and as leader of the Greens with immediate effect, following the death of his father. His seat in Bass was filled by Andrea Dawkins after the TEC conducted a count back from the 2014 election results.
