Mount Macedon Fungi Ramble

On Sunday 18 April 2021, join the Macedon Ranges Field Naturalists and local fungi enthusiast, Greg Boldiston, for a ramble around Sanitorium Lake to view and identify the fungi of the area. After a short discussion, we will take a stroll around the lake to take in the great diversity of fungi in the area.

With its wetter climate and diversity of habitats, the Macedon Ranges is a hotspot for an incredible range of fungi. In the Wombat Forest alone, hundreds of species have been documented from the familiar mushroom to the more bizarre forms like corals (pictured), cups, clubs, jellies, lattice balls and even starfish! Wombat Forestcare have an excellent guide to help identify local fungi, available here:

When: 2pm, Sunday 18 April
Where: Lions Head Road Car Park, Lions Head Road, Mount Macedon
Bring: Thermos, snacks and appropriate walking shoes and clothing for the weather.
