Hakea rostrata is a member of the Proteaceae family and is known as the Beaked Hakea.

Hakea rostrata is a small to medium shrub that may have spreading or rounded growth habit. Leaves may be from 2 to 15 centimetres long and 1 millimetre wide. They are linear, sometimes curving upright with a sharp point.

Flower clusters are carried in leaf axils with up to ten, white, scented flowers in each cluster. Blooms appear from July to November. They are followed by unusual S-shaped (sigmoidal is the scientific term) woody fruits that are up to 4.5 centimetres long. They have a narrow beak curling backwards along the body of the fruit. This feature gives the species its common name.
Hakea rostrata is a native of Victoria and South Australia.
