Winter Fungus Discovery hike in the Olinda Forest




On Monday June 21 2010 I went on a "Fungus Discovery" hike deep in the Olinda Forest, Dandenong Ranges National Park, 35 km east of Melbourne town.

I parked at the entrance to Price's Track, off Silvan Rd, and proceeded to the junction with unsigned Bridge Track.

Descending this narrow track, I reached the ancient footbridge, which spans the Lyrebird Creek.

I returned the same way, through magnificent forest and fern gullies, a total distance of about 3 km on a very cold winter's afternoon.

There were myriads of beautiful fungi along the tracks, of all colors, shapes and sizes, along the tracks.

I am not a field naturalist, but the diversity of these winter fungi is truly amazing!
