Regarding the first picture it seems that there is an introduced poplar. During my stay in Oz I found, sometimes abundantly, Paxillus involutus with introduced birches.
Is this habitat an artificial one in rural area? Or is it indigenous outside and rather far away from a village (which I do not think) ?
If rural, I would go for Paxillus involutus (see my obs. of it from Katoomba).
If indigenous, Austropaxillus is right.

Thank you Roy, Noah, and bloodworm! I had never come across these before yesterday and so had no idea. As for where I found them, unfortunately I don’t know the name of the shrubs that I found them under… But they can be seen in the first photo. I’ll look into it and update this observation once I find out.
