The National Socialist Party of New Zealand, sometimes called the New Zealand Nazi Party, was a far-right political party in New Zealand. It promulgated the same basic views as Adolf Hitler's Nazi Party in Germany, and had a particular focus on Arabs, Jews and the banking sector.

From 1969 the party was led by Colin King-Ansell.[1] The party would be dominated by King-Ansell for the duration of its existence. King-Ansell was the party's sole candidate, and contested several elections.[2]

The party dissolved in 1980.
