Steven John "Steve" Dargavel (born 10 June 1966) is a former Australian politician.

Dargavel was born in Traralgon, Victoria and received an Associate Diploma in Welfare Studies from Monash University. He then worked as a youth refuge worker, youth housing worker and employment counsellor. He then became a research officer and, from 1996, an organiser for the Australian Manufacturing Workers Union.[1]

Dargavel won a by-election in 1997 as the Australian Labor Party candidate for the House of Representatives seat of Fraser following the resignation of John Langmore to take up a position in the United Nations.[1] He was beaten for preselection for the seat for the 1998 election by Bob McMullan, when the electorate of Namadgi was abolished, leading to a reshuffling of Labor candidates between the Australian Capital Territory electorates.
