Event Description

Why don’t you come to a mushroom hunt instead of egg hunt this Easter? Join a guided mushroom foraging tour on Saturday 11 April at 9.30am.

Autumn is the wild edible mushroom picking season in cool climate pine forests around Sydney and the delicacies found there are prized by the best Australian chefs. Learn how to find, pick and process wild edible mushrooms.

Meet at Hampton beyond the Blue Mountains and fgo to pine forests along Jenolan Cave Road to harvest precious nature’s gift – wild mushrooms. Your guide will teach you how to safely recognise and pick them, and will run a safety check of your basket.

Also included in the ticket price are:

  • fresh barbecue lunch from the day’s bounty
  • mini-workshop on preserving mushrooms: a great opportunity to learn about cleaning, drying, pickling and fermenting
  • fact sheet about the two species of mushrooms we will be looking for (emailed after you book your ticket)
  • recipes for preserving

You will return home not only with what you found, but also with confidence to safely recognise two varieties of wild edible mushrooms and knowledge about how to preserve them. What you learn at the tour will allow you to return to the pine forests to collect these mushrooms yourself!
