Craig John Duby (born 20 February 1949)[1] was a politician in the Australian Capital Territory. In 1989 Duby was elected as a member of the No Self-Government Party, critical of the decision by the Australian governmentto replace direct administration of the Territory with self-government.[2] Reversal of the move to self-government proved impractical and Duby resigned from the No Self-Government Party, along with Carmel Maher and David Prowse, to form the Independents Group on 3 December 1989. Duby left the Independents Group to found the Hare-Clark Independent Party on 19 November 1991.

Duby served as Minister for Finance and Urban Services.[3] In this capacity his most notable achievement was the construction of the "Duby dome" a cover for the Canberra Olympic Swimming Pool permitting its year-round use. Commenting on the Duby dome, Liberal leader Gary Humphries said:

The words of some great sage spring to mind: "Things that men do live after them". I am afraid that there is very little else in the Territory that will live after Mr Duby, so to do away with his one remaining monument in the Territory would be a great pity, Mr Speaker.[4]

He also served, for one day, as Leader of the Opposition.[3]
