Charles Moore (29 August 1820 – 4 July 1895) was an Irish-born Australian politician.

He was born at Ballymacarne in County Cavan to farmer James Moore and Catherine Rogers. He was educated at Fermanagh and became an apprentice draper, eventually in Dublin. He came to South Australia with a drapery shipment and settled in Sydney in 1850, where he opened his own drapery. He married twice: first to Sarah Jane Wilcox, and second to Annie Hill Montgomery in 1883. He was a Randwick alderman from 1860 to 1886 and mayor in 1863, and a Sydney City Councillor from 1865 to 1869 and from 1871 to 1886, serving as Mayor from 1867 to 1869. In 1874 he was elected to the New South Wales Legislative Assembly for East Sydney, but he was defeated at the general election later that year. In 1880 he was appointed to the New South Wales Legislative Council, where he remained until his death at Parramatta in 1895. Moore Park is named for him.
