June Outing Sanatorium Lake Mount Macedon




Monthly Outing Sunday June 19, 9.50 am for 10 am

departure meet at Kirks Entrance for travel to

Mt Macedon.


Sanatorium Lake is a rainforest area situated at the top of Mt

Macedon. Historically, Sanatorium Lake was purpose-built to

provide a water source to a hospital specialising in the

treatment of tuberculosis, which was never built.

The walk is about a 2.5km easy loop walk and passes through

several vegetation types, including tall eucalypt forests and a

wet fern gully. The area is well-known to exhibit a great variety

of fungi types, particularly at this time of the year.

The photography of the fungi will be our main interest on this

trip but, of course, there will be great views and landscape

options, particularly around the Sanatorium Lake.

We will meet at the carpark at the entrance to the Kirks picnic

ground, before the gate. We will car pool and cars can be left

there safely. The aim is to leave promptly at 10 am on Sunday

19th June.

The trip will take just over an hour of travel and we will meet

at Gisborne to convoy to the Mt Macedon Trading Post at the

bottom of Mt Macedon for coffee and/or nibbles and then

drive to the picnic area at the entrance to the walk.

Bring along a thermos and lunch for a picnic lunch.

If anyone doesn’t wish to do the full 2.5 km walk, just do what

you feel comfortable with. There are many opportunities for

stopping and admiring the large trees and the small and

colourful fungi.

Many species of fungi are toxic if eaten although they are safe

to touch but ensure that you wash your hands prior to

consuming any food. For more information about fungi see:
