The Ghost Mushroom Lane visitor site is located within a known mushroom breeding ground, among commercial pine forest near Glencoe just 16km from Mount Gambier. It is open in May and June, during the annual Ghost Mushroom season.
Before visiting the site, you must obtain an access pass. Passes can be booked and paid for online via the button below.
To comply with SA Government COVID-19 regulations and assist with contract tracing, all visitors to the lane must check-in on arrival using the mySA GOV app. A manual sign-in option will also be provided for those unable to use the app.
Visitors keen to exit their cars to see the mushrooms up close, should wear warm clothes, sensible shoes and bring a torch to help navigate the forest trails and uneven ground.
For the enjoyment of others, please leave the mushrooms exactly as you found them. The chemical in the mushroom responsible for the glow can be poisonous, causing cramps and vomiting if ingested. Accidental touching is not harmful.
Please observe the conditions of entry to the forest and take care while walking on uneven ground in the dark.
Please note: Ghost Mushroom Lane is not suitable for buses, caravans, campervans or trailers. Car-parking is available out the front. Commercial bus tour operators must contact ForestrySA in advance to arrange access.
