Paul Weller (born 3 April 1959) is an Australian politician and the Nationals member for Rodney in the Victorian Legislative Assembly from 2006 to 2014.

Weller won pre-selection for Rodney after the retirement of Noel Maughan. Despite unfavourable preferences from the Labor Party, Weller won 40% of the primary vote and 54% of the two-party-preferred vote against the Liberal candidate.

In February 2014, he was elected Deputy Speaker of the Legislative Assembly under Christine Fyffe. His seat was abolished before the 2014 election and he contested the Legislative Council seat of Northern Victoria in the unwinnable fourth position on the Coalition ticket.
