Timothy John "Tim" Whetstone is an Australian politician representing the seat of Chaffey in the South Australian House of Assembly for the South Australian Division of the Liberal Party of Australia since the 2010 election.
Whetstone started work as a fitter and turner at Holdens after school and worked his way up to be a project manager in the Moomba gas fields while developing his own business building and restoring muscle cars and boats. He moved to the Riverland in 1989 where he started his citrus and wine grape business. Whetstone was elected to the board of the Renmark Irrigation Trust in 1998.
Whetstone contested the seat of Chaffey at the 2010 election for the Liberal Party, receiving a 20-point two-candidate swing from incumbent SA Nationals MP Karlene Maywald, to finish with 53.8 percent of the two-candidate vote. The SA Nationals did not contest the 2014 election, which saw Whetstone win 75.1 percent of the two-party vote.
