Mushrooms are packed with antioxidants and a major source of protein, fibre, vitamins B and C, and they taste delicious! On the Mornington Peninsula there are people with a passion for mushrooms in all sorts of ways: foraging, cooking, eating. You can even try a mushroom cappuccino! There are some 10,000 species of funghi in Australia (not all of them are edible), so for those wanting to get close to the source, we suggest joining some experienced mushroom hunters. Don your gumboots and enjoy a guided ramble. You’ll be surprised at how much you learn along the way.
