Hunting and Identifying Magic Mushrooms in Australia

Hunting and Identifying Magic Mushrooms in Australia is a fun hobby with huge rewards. Just make sure you seek out to find your shroomies when it’s the right season.

Identifying magic mushrooms

Magic mushrooms can look like every day, ordinary mushrooms. So, it is important to identify any mushrooms you collect. There are many poisonous varieties. Australia has many species of magic mushies that are easily mistaken for poisonous ones that can cause death.

Synthetic Psilocybin

You can buy magic mushies dried in capsules and there is a synthetic form of the psilocybin. It’s a white crystalline powder and it’s used for making tablets and capsules. You can also use it dissolved in water.



Australia has at least 30 species of magic mushrooms. The most common in Australia blue meanies, gold tops and liberty caps. We have many articles to read. We hope you enjoy them all.

    Anywhere around cudlee creek or Kuitpo forest , you need clear frosty nights an sunny morning s , you should go early morning as they disappear by afternoon usually

    They are pretty difficult to spot but you could be standing amongst them , gt MUST have purple discolouration in the stem straight after picking , the tops are very shiny gold , I would normally boil up about 10 @. 10 cent piece size , is a good 3 hour trip , good visuals
    When I was younger me an 2 of my mate would drive around with 2 x2 litre coke bottles full of mushy juice just drinking it in a day , tripping for days

    I’m keen to hunt down a few different species of magic mushies. Will I need to travel to far apart locatons or can I find them nearby each other in the same forest/paddy field?

    Hi can someone please tell me where I can purchase / buy mushrooms from please? I live in Sydney and really want to take my dad on a trip. He is a bit stuck in life at the moment. Please anyone. It’s getting cold down here and chances of finding them soon will be slim.
    I would really be so happy if someone can help.
