Short FOBIF walk in Whiskey Gully


A dozen people enjoyed winter sunshine on Mount Alexander (Leanganook) on Sunday’s short walk. We began at Dog Rocks and strolled down Whiskey Gully before looping back to the start. Recent rains meant there was abundant fungi and once again Joy Clusker’s expert knowledge was a terrific help in identifying the many species. Enthusiastic walkers explored fallen logs and ground cover sometimes lying on wet leaves to get that special photo. Highlights of the walk included the gigantic Mannna Gums which prefer the moister soil on the mountain and Lightwood trees which are common in granite landscapes.  

Thanks to Joy and Liz for organising a fungi walk on Mount Alexander for the second time in 2 years.  Our next walk will be in Drummond North, Fryers Conservation Reserve. See the walks page for more detail. Also check the website before the walk in case there are changes.
