Robin Donald Chalmers (14 July 1929 – 27 July 2011) was an independent Australian political journalist and commentator. The Canberra Press Gallery's longest serving member, from 1951 to 2011, his career spanned over 60 years reporting on the Parliament of Australia. Chiefly using the mediums of print and radio, his audience consisted mainly of other well-informed interested parties in the media, politics, industry and government, not a face often seen by the mainstream general public; he was, as described by the prime minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, "a journalist's journalist"
. In the later half of Chalmers career, he was best known for his roles with the independent, economic and political, weekly newsletter Inside Canberra (http://insidecanberra.com<nowiki/>).
