Patricia "Trish" Draper (born 2 April 1959), Australian politician, was a Liberal member of the
Australian House of Representatives from March 1996 until November 2007, representing the Division of Makin, South Australia. She was born in Adelaide, South Australia, and was educated at the University of South Australia. She was a nurse before entering politics. She was often distinguished in parliament by her wearing of a red-blue-yellow scarf, showing her support for the Adelaide Crows.

She first won her seat after defeating the sitting ALP member Peter Duncan in 1996.

A poll by "The Advertiser" in August 2004 found her trailing ALP candidate Tony Zappia, the mayor of Salisbury 56-44 on a two party preferred basis. However in the election of 2004 she won the seat of Makin.

Draper did not recontest preselection for her seat in the 2007 election. [ [http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200607/s1698337.htm Federal MP Draper to quit politics] ]
