Ghost Mushroom walking trails

Check out which walking trails are now open!

FUNGI HUNTER ALLEY: 700M LOOP WALK
This trail leaves directly from the Green Lantern Carpark on the left hand side of the lane. Most of the trail is located on an existing forest fire track and loops around mushroom colonies of different ages and sizes.

GHOSTLY GULLY: 700M LOOP WALK
The start of this trail can be found between the Omphalotus Car Park and Green Lantern Car Park, on the left handside of the lane. But be careful to follow the directional arrow markers, as this 700m loop walk begins on the left hand side of the lane, crosses over mid-way before ending on the right hand side! The trail meanders through the forest past large ghost mushrooms, before taking in a lovely new batch situated on the other side of the lane. For those who want to see beautiful mushrooms without having to walk too far, take the shorter trail on the right-hand side of the track.

THE NEON FOREST: 700M LOOP WALK
This trail leaves directly from the Green Lantern Carpark on the right-hand side of the lane, opposite Fungi Hunter Alley!  The trail begins on the existing forest fire track, and then loops into the forest on the right-hand side. This trail is in a darker part of the forest and boasts neat little clusters glowing beneath the bracken ferns.

FAIRYTALE HOLLOW: 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.
