Reginald John David "Spot" Turnbull (21 February 1908 – 17 July 2006) was an Australian politician.

He was a member of the Tasmanian House of Assembly from 1946 to 1962 (1946–1959 for the Labor Party, 1959–1962 as an Independent), then a Senator for Tasmania from 1962 until 1974.[1]

Though he was elected Senator each time as an Independent,[1] he briefly served as leader of the Australia Party from August 1969 to January 1970.[2]

Turnbull also served as Mayor of Launceston from 1964 to 1965.
