Grevillea acrobotrya, is a shrub which is endemic to the southwest of Western Australia.

It has a spreading or erect habit, growing to a height of between 0.6 and 2 metres with leaves which are 10 to 30 mm long and 12 to 30 mm wide. White or cream flowers appear in racemes throughout the year.

The species was first formally described by Swiss botanist Carl Meissner in Hooker's Journal of Botany and Kew Garden Miscellany in 1855, based on plant material collected by James Drummond from the hinterland north of the Swan River.

It occurs among low to medium-sized trees in heathland.
