Funky forest fungi...
Did you know that New Zealand boasts more than 20,000 species of fungus of which only about 4,000 have so far been fully classified? Most are unique to New Zealand. Many are microscopic in size, but others massive and colourful. Some are edible, though a large number are probably poisonous; but almost all are beautiful to behold during various stages of their life-cycle!
The temperate rain forests of the Remutaka Forest Park provide a superb natural habitat for thousands of different fungi awaiting your exploration and discovery.
