Fungi in Kings Park. Photo: D. Blumer.View image slideshowFungi play a crucial role in native ecosystems and keeping the bush healthy. They are an important source of food for insects and some animals. Look for them in the bushland, especially after the rains: mushrooms, truffles, discs, caps and other fungi in all sorts of weird shapes, sizes and brilliant colours.

Regular fungi surveys within the Kings Park bushland have led to the formal identification of 265 species of fungi. With a high proportion of previously undocumented fungi being identified each year it is anticipated that many more species are yet to be uncovered. Almost all of the species are considered to be indigenous to the area.

Reports providing detailed information on fungi forays conducted in the bushland are available upon request. Please contact the Customer Service Officer.
