FUNGI HUNTER ALLEY: 700M LOOP WALK
This is the place to be for fresh mushrooms in all kinds of peculiar shapes, sizes and colours! Located on the left hand side, just 150m from the main entrance to Ghost Mushroom Lane, visitors will be treated to hundreds of fresh mushie clusters – from fans to funnel-shapes and colours ranging from brown to white, this trail is something special. Regular visitors will notice our staff have made some small clearings beside the trail, to help you locate some truly extraordinary mushroom clusters.

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.
