Timbs Track is a great place to park the car and go on a fungi forage. The track itself is the starting point for the multi day hike out to Lake Rhona but there are a few side tracks that were tagged during the anti-forestry protests a few years ago. As a side note, it is nice to know the area was in fact spared the logging and has been added to the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. There is even some interpretive signage up now and the tracks are in quite good condition and easy to follow.
These shots are all from a day out there last week. The fungi was everywhere and should be around for at least a few weeks to come so grab that macro lens and get out there!
Helpful fungi resources:
Aside from of course joining one of my autumn photography tours (which of course is my number 1 recommendation!), I would suggest checking out the following for more fungi fun:
Fungi Flip – waterproof ID guide to the most common Tasmanian fungi
Field Guide – a very nicely presented book with loads of info
Tasfungi.com.au – the website that brings it all together
Tasmanian Fungi group on Facebook. Got any questions? Share your photos and ask away!
