Benjamin Sana (Ben) Wyatt is an Australian politician. He has been an Australian Labor Party member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly since March 2006, representing the electorate of Victoria Park.

In 2006, after Dr. Geoff Gallop resigned, he became the front-runner for preselection in the electorate of Victoria Park. He is the third aboriginal to be elected to the WA Parliament, and the second youngest in the current parliament.

In 2008 Wyatt was cleared by the Corruption and Crime Commission in relation to dealings with lobbyist Brian Burke. Burke approached Wyatt in order to launch a parliamentary enquiry that would favour one of Burke's associates.
