Seasoned mushroom fossickers tend to keep their favorite locations a secret!

Enjoy:)

I hope photographing mushrooms is not a euphemism for picking mushrooms but not admitting it in case you are not allowed to take them. Do NOT eat wild mushrooms (only people with proper training in how to recognise the safe Australian varieties should touch them).

Is the middle of winter even mushie season?

When I lived in the mountains outside of Melbourne we gathered mushroom in the autumn months.

There is definitely fungi growing

GD got some excellent shots at CM last week…

just needs the damp, mushrooms are more than those whitecaps we all eat

Truffle is a fungus and the peak season is now :)

I got some lovely pine mushrooms, slippery jacks and another greyish/ mauve variety at my local market last week. There's a German couple who have a few acres & bring wonderful mushrooms when they have them.

And let's not forget Australia's largest perigord truffle at 1.17kg was found at Robertson at the end of June.

no MacKnee I have no intention of disturbing or picking any mushrooms, if I wanted to eat them then I would buy them from the supermarket.

as I have stated I only plan to photograph mushrooms with my photography group who had already planned on going somewhere this coming weekend and since I don't want to spend all day just walking around a paddock and see nothing, hence why I am asking this question to try to decide where to meet and where we should go.

some of my group mentioned

# scott creek

# mount Crawford

# mount George conservation park

Mount Crawford amongst the pines would be my suggestion.

If you head that way, stop at the Ranger Station and grab a map of the area.

Yes they are a legitimate photography group cos I am also a member...too cold for me to go so enjoy yourself...just remember that in the hills is a lot colder than the adelaide temp. But agree with the person that says they are all mushie...saw some yesterday on my walk and they are all mush...mushrooms grow after the rain and need some sun. And to anyone who sees them, they can only grow from spores left in the ground, so if picking them its best to cut them near the base and a small part in the ground. Perhaps you could email one o the walking and jogging groups..they may have seen some around.

I would be emailing some rangers in the parks and ask them...for any spots of undistrubed mushrooms. Have fun ♡
