Ernest Thomas (Ernie) Page (born 18 February 1935) is an Australian politician. He was an Australian Labor Party member of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly from 1981 to 2003, representing the electorates of Waverley (1981–1991) and Coogee (1991–2003).
Page was educated at St Josephs College in Hunters Hill and the University of New South Wales, and served two years as a conscript in the army in 1954-55. He worked as an engineer in the electricity industry before entering state politics, and was an active member of both the Labor Party and the trade union movement. Page was a councillor for the Waverley Municipal Council from 1962 to 1987, nine of those years as mayor.
Page nominated for Labor preselection for the local seat of Waverley at the 1981 state election after the retirement of Wran government minister Syd Einfeld, and was successful. He easily defeated the Liberal candidate on election day, and was re-elected twice more, before switching to the seat of Coogee when Waverley was abolished in 1991. He served another three terms as the member for Coogee. Page also served as Minister for Local Government in the first Carr government from 1995 to 1999, but was not reappointed to the ministry after the 1999 state election. Page retired at the 2003 election.
