Ghost Mushroom walking trails

Walking trails now open

A number of trails are currently open within the Ghost Mushroom Central precinct:

Neon Forest: Large, fresh mushrooms can be found growing throughout the entirety of this 600m return long forest adventure. You can find the Neon Forest walk on the left-hand side of the lane, 100m from the Ghost Mushroom Information Bay.

Fairytale Hollow: Located directly opposite the Neon Forest on the right hand side of lane, this 700m return forest walk promises abundance of large mushrooms scattered along the way, some as large as 20cm!

Ghostly Gully: This 450m return walk begins at the Green Lantern car-park. This trail will take you North along a fire break, before entering the forest and looping around a fresh batch of mushrooms.

Fungi Hunter Alley: Closed

FAQs for walking trail visitors

Where can I park my car? We recommend parking in one of the three main car parks before exploring the trails on foot. Limited car parking is available adjacent to these walking trails.

How long are the trails? The distance of each walking trail depends on the location of the mushrooms, but generally varies from less than 100m to around 600m. All trails are well marked to allow for easy night time navigation.

What is the terrain like? Please be aware that all trails are located within a working commercial pine forest and entry is undertaken at your own risk. The ground is irregular and uneven, with loose surfaces. As the Ghost Mushroom can only be seen after dark, visibility is also poor. This experience is suited to people with an average level of fitness.

What should I bring? Warm clothes, sensible closed-toe footwear and a torch are a must.
