#1 is a puffball, possibly a lycoperdon sp.
#2 is a chlorophyllum or macrolepiota species, possibly macrolepiota procera
#3 is another chlorophyllum/macrolepiota
#4 not really sure about this one; it rings a bell somewhere, but not loud enough. Looks a bit like a pluteus, but that's not it.

I guess the Macrolepiota is edible.

I could be wrong, some people get allergic reactions from Macrolepiota, but you live too far away to kick my ass anyway.

The puff ball might be edible but I would hesitate to recommend it without better pictures and a clear picture of a cross section.

Puff balls are edible if (and as long as) they're white all the way through. I'm not sure about the macrolepiota; some sources list it as edible, some only edible when cooked. I'd be careful with it in any case. And I certainly wouldn't recommend eating anything in the last pic.

Be careful in there as it is highly policed nowadays.

I have found Psilocybes in there, not many, but the main reason for being in there was to grow cannabis.

These days the forestry workers are on to this and the local farmers will report suspicious activity, they also do come up to you and ask what you're up to. Just be aware that you could be asked some questions and to have a plan if this happens.

What kind of "edibility" are you referring to? Because I got the feeling that what you are really asking is whether they are "magic" or not.

Nobody will give you any exact places, and its also against the rules in the forums.

Do you know what species you are looking for?

I would presume Psilocybe Weraroa Novea-Zelandiae, and Psilocybe Subaeruginosa.

Like said above, specifics aren't allowed.

You're in a great area for Psilocybes and with a little searching I'm sure you'll find what you're after. Look in woodchip garden beds, they're like Psilocybe supermarkets.
