List of High Commissioners of New Zealand to Australia

The High Commissioner from New Zealand to Australia is New Zealand's foremost diplomatic representative in the Commonwealth of Australia, and in charge of New Zealand's diplomatic mission in Australia.

The High Commission is located in Canberra, Australia's capital city. New Zealand has maintained a resident High Commissioner in Australia since 1943.

As fellow members of the Commonwealth of Nations, diplomatic relations between New Zealand and Australia are at governmental level, rather than between Heads of State. Thus, the countries exchange High Commissioners, rather than ambassadors.
