Winter Fungi in the Olinda Forest

Colorful fungi emerge from their beds each winter in the hills around Melbourne!

On June 5, 2010, I went over to the Olinda Forest in the Dandenong Ranges National Park and found an enormous range of beautiful fungi on a 2 km hike around the Olinda Creek.

My exploration started at the Olinda Creek Rd, then along the gated Management Track 13 to the Creek, then along the Creek Track and return.

Creek Track runs parallel to the Creek, opposite the commercial Flower Farm, and is being closed off by Parks Victoria and is now only accessible as a dead-end track from Track 13.

See all of the Photos of my visit, including some historical images from the 1860s!
