Kiwiblog is a New Zealand right-wing political blog written by National Party advisor and pollster David Farrar.

It is one of the most widely read blogs in New Zealand.[2] The National Business Review has stated that "any realistic 'power list' produced in this country would include either Farrar or his fellow blogger and opinion leader Russell Brown."[3] In August 2006, National Party leader Don Brash commented on the blog.[4]

The blog was created by Farrar in July 2003, on the instigation of then prominent New Zealand blogger Gordon King.
