Meyer's goshawk (Accipiter meyerianus) is a species of bird of prey in the family Accipitridae. It is found in Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, and Solomon Islands. Its natural habitats are subtropical or tropical moist lowland forests and subtropical or tropical moist montane forests.

The common name commemorates Adolf Bernard Meyer (1840-1911), a German anthropologist and orinthologist who collected in the Dutch East Indies.
