Mt Wellington fungi forage

Well travel restrictions are starting to ease here in Tasmania and we are now allowed to visit reserves within 30km of home, so for Hobartians this pretty much means Mt Wellington – here we come. Not sure how the ol’ social distancing is going to work in the limited car parks and narrow trails up there etc but I guess she’ll be right, as they say in the classics. Anyhoo, I went for a wander up the Myrtle Gully track a couple of days ago – just because I can now and these are the fungi finds for the day.

It was great to be out again and I am certainly looking forward to being able to travel more than 30kms again – hopefully in the not too distant future 🙂
