Peter Donald Shack (born 20 June 1953) is a former Australian politician. Born in Perth, Western Australia, he was educated at Wesley College, Perth and the University of Western Australia before becoming a company director and political advisor. In 1977, he was elected to the Australian House of Representatives as the Liberal member for Tangney. He was defeated by Labor's George Gear in 1983. However, a redistribution for the 1984 election made Tangney notionally Liberal, forcing Gear to transfer to nearby Canning. Shack ran for his old seat in that election and won it with a large swing. He held the seat without serious difficulty until his retirement in 1993.

In January 2013 Shack was convicted of stealing $100,000 from his mother-in-law Mary Stasinowsky in July 2004. On 26 April he was sentenced to 14 months imprisonment.
