Craig Maxwell Farrell (born 28 January 1964) is an Australian politician, and a member of the Tasmanian Legislative Council representing the seat of Derwent for the Australian Labor Party.

Farrell was elected to the Legislative Council in a by-election on 7 May 2011 following the resignation of Michael Aird in 2010. He also served as a councillor and Deputy Mayor of Derwent Valley Council until October 2011, and was an electoral officer in the New Norfolk office of federal MP Dick Adams. In February 2012 he stood down as president of the Derwent Valley Railway Preservation Society but remained on the board.

On his first day in Parliament, Farrell was appointed Deputy Leader of Government Business in the Upper House. A year later he was appointed Leader of Government Business in the Upper House on the retirement of the incumbent, Doug Parkinson.

In the 1980s, Farrell hosted The Cartoon Company, a Saturday morning cartoon programming block on TasTV, with a costumed character called "Boss Poss". From the 1990s he was variously a television sales executive and real estate representative.
