Although little known, the roots of almost every plant in the Australian landscape are intimately entwined with fungi. These clandestine relationships extend beyond trees to include every orchid and most shrubs and grasses. Symbioses are the secret to success in our highly variable climate and nutrient-deficient soils.

In this highly interactive introductory workshop, you’ll get to experience a range of fungi from the local region and learn about their fascinating ecology, life histories and cultural significance.

Don’t forget to bring along your mushroom specimens for identification.
