Acacia truncata is a coastal shrub in the family Fabaceae, with a native distribution along the southwest coast of Western Australia. A specimen of this wattle was part of an early European botanical collection, perhaps the first from Australia.

The shrub is a dense and dome shaped plant 0.5–2.3 metres (1 ft 8 in–7 ft 7 in) high. Flowerheads are globe-shaped and composed of 7-16 pale yellow flowers, on stalks between 10 and 25 mm (0.39 and 0.98 in) long. Like many other Acacia species, A. truncata has phyllodes rather than true leaves. The phyllodes range from 9 to 25 millimetres (0.35 to 0.98 in) long and 5–13 millimetres (0.20–0.51 in) wide.
