Echidna Tracks is a collection of Australian haiku, which will be presented as Issues on selected topics. Echidna Tracks is also searchable by subject categories that cover the entire collection and by individual authors through the tag index. The tag index appears at the bottom of each page.
Issues will be published one haiku at a time. We match some haiku with images.
Submissions for Issues of Echidna Tracks will be requested during the months of April and October each year. See Submissions for further details. During April and October, a form for submitting haiku will be made available from the Submissions page.
Australia in the 21st Century is a vibrant multicultural society. We hope to reflect, in the haiku/senryu collected on this website, the variety of peoples that inhabit Australia and the variety of landscapes in this continent.
Echidna Tracks welcomes haiku particular to our Australian environment and expression and that spring from and reflect aspects of landscape, flora and fauna and acknowledge the diversity of lifestyles, values, character, customs, cultures and historical experience.
