Colin Robertson (born 19 June 1957) is a former Australian rules footballer who represented Hawthorn in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the 1980s.

A hard running player, Robertson was a versatile footballer who could play across half back, on wing or on the ball. Robertson spent six seasons with Tasmanian club Wynyard, playing in premierships with the club in 1975 and 1979 before joining Hawthorn the following season. Robertson became a key part of the club's dominance during the early 1980s. In the 1983 VFL Grand Final he became the first Tasmanian to win the Norm Smith Medal after a superb tagging job on Essendon's dangerous rover Tim Watson.

In 1987 Robertson returned to Tasmania to Captain the Burnie Hawks in the TSL for 3 seasons. In the last season he was Captain-Coach. He was non-laying coach of Wynyard in 1991 and 1992.

In June 2011 Robertson was upgraded to Legend status in the Tasmanian Football Hall of Fame.
