The Overland Diaries pt.XX – fungi season

Late season is fungi season on the Overland Track, and it’s fair to say it’s one of my favourite times to be up in the mountains.

If you look carefully you’ll find fungi in the park at pretty much any time of the year, as long as there is moisture, shade and some old organic material, but it’s late summer and early autumn, in the deep, cool rainforests of the Upper Mersey and Upper Forth valleys where they really put on a show.

All shot with the surprisingly versitile Ricoh GR. I have no idea what any of them are called (except the first; a Strawberry Bracket) so if there’s any mushroom experts out there let me know in the comments!

DARK MOFO, Hobart Town

Last year 128,000 people turned up to the 10 days of MONA’s inaugural DARK MOFO winter festival.

Think on that for a moment.

It’s awesome in all the ways that summer festivals are predictable and it’s on as we speak, so grab your beanie and Grandma’s old jumper and get down to Hobart Town.
