Acacia echinula, commonly known as hedgehog wattle, is a shrub belonging to the genus Acacia and the subgenus Phyllodineae that is endemic to New South Wales.

The intricate multi-branched shrub typically grows to a height of 2 m (6 ft 7 in) and has hairy branchlets with 1 to 2 mm (0.039 to 0.079 in) long stipules. When it blooms it produces yellow coloured flowers.[1]

It is found in eastern parts of New South Wales from around Nowra in the south to Grafton in the north on hills and plains in sandy soils often over sandstone as a part of dry sclerophyll forest communities.[1]
