Chewton mines and bushlands

The August FOBIF walk attracted 17 walkers despite the extremely cold early morning temperatures. Fortunately it soon turned out to be a sunny winter’s day which was perfect for a leisurely bushwalk along the Poverty Gully Reservoir Track and water race. Many thanks to Richard Piesse for leading this interesting walk which was took in mining history and a range of late winter and early spring flowering plants. A highlight of the day was the wonderful display of flowering Golden Wattle Acacia pycnantha

Fungi expert, Joy Clusker, sent us the following fungi photos taken on the walk.
