Trevor John Perrett (born 2 August 1941 in Kingaroy, Queensland) is a former Australian politician. He was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland from 1988 to 1998, representing the electorate of Barambah.[1]

Perrett was elected at the 1988 Barambah state by-election as the Citizens Electoral Council candidate. A year later he joined the Nationals. He represented the seat until his defeat by One Nation candidate Dorothy Pratt at the 1998 state election.[1]

Perrett was Minister for Primary Industries, Fisheries and Forestry in the government of Rob Borbidge from 1996 to 1998,[1] but was caught out having a sexual relationship lasting several years with a prostitute, Colleen Jefferies, who was found dead in her Brisbane home in 1996 in suspicious circumstances.[2][3]
