Sorry if this is a double post. Trying to post from a phone.

Hi, I'm in South East Queensland and I found what looks like small clumps of naturally occuring, hollow, brown balls. I tried to gently poke one with a stick, and it had a soft sort of skin that gave way to (but wasn't punctured by) it and emitted a small plume of brown smoke when presured. I found it next to a group of mushrooms and also next a line of small ants. To be perfectly honest I'm not even sure whether it's a plant, or something created by an animal or something completely different. I've attached a photo of the mushroom (and a slight side view of the gills, in case the mushroom matters at all) and two photos of the brown balls. If they aren't related to plants could somebody possibly point me in the right direction to identifying them? I'm very curious about it.
Thank you in advance for any replies.

They are puffball fungus.
Other than that I don't know too much about them.
