Samuel Peter Hibbins (born 18 February 1982) is an Australian politician. He has been a Greens member of the Victorian Legislative Assembly since November 2014, representing the electoral district of Prahran. Along with Ellen Sandell who won Melbourne at the same election, Hibbins was one of the first two Greens politicians elected to the Victorian lower house. Hibbins is also the first Greens candidate to gain a seat from a sitting Liberal MP.[1]

Prior to his election, Hibbins was a councillor on the City of Stonnington council from 2012 to 2014. Before that, Hibbins was a youth worker at the Victorian Government's Department of Human Services.[2] He had previously contested the seat of Malvern at the 2010 state election, and the seat of Higgins at the federal election in the same year.[3]
