Fungi of the Wombat Forest and Macedon Ranges

By Alison Pouliot

Only an hour's drive from Melbourne, the diverse ecosystems of the Wombat Forest are a perfect place to experience an incredible variety of fungi. Hundreds of species have been documented and several of the Wombat Forestcare members have contributed records to the Fungimap database.
