Fagus Watch 2022

Sat 16 Apr, 2022 12:51 pm

Starting this thread given it is that time of year again.

Please share your reports / photos of fagus sightings out and about. It must be getting close now in some places?

Just starting to turn on the ridges to Camp Hill and Pyramid Mountain, seems later than usual this season though?
Judging by the photos on Insta there's plenty of golden leaves around the usual spots around Cradle.

Always a magic time of year :-)

Quick follow up on this thread- doesn't seem to be very active this season.. Either it's still too early this year for most of the usual sites to turn or perhaps the topic just doesn't attract much attention these days?

Any updates/ photos from around the State?

Went to the Tarn Shelf on 18th April and found some colour. Still a way to go at that stage though.

Everyone was getting off the bus at Dove Lake last week looking for Fagus and there really isnt too much to be seen from the carpark.
Behind Little Horn was a different ocean of yellow!! ( but not so much red ).

further to the comment that this thread has been a bit quiet....we headed up to Tarn Shelf yesterday and the fagus is looking perfect! Some small twigs/patches of red but mostly yellows and oranges but looking beautiful along the water’s edge. Also, the gully and area around Lake Fenton dam is perfect for those who just want to park the car and walk a few paces to be amongst some good fagus.

Pics from tan shelf below.

Hey Robl. Love the fagus at the base of Geryon. It always looks amazing.

We were out that way during the week, on a different walk, and could see the Geryon fagus from miles away!

We had some good fagus too. This one’s just a phone photo.
