Mushroom Island
A mushroom island

Accessible by:

Swimming or Boat. When connected to mainland, it can be also accesed by foot.



Environmental Features:

Hilly terrain covered in Mycelium and Mushrooms



A Mushroom Island is an extremely rare Biome that typically generates towards the edges of the player's world(s). Mushroom biomes are generally considered the most unique of all biomes.



Mycelium is a somewhat rare block considering that it can only be found on one biome.

Mushroom Biomes are typically separated from all other biomes and are usually found alone in the Ocean. Mushroom Biomes usually consist of only blocks of Mycelium on the surface. Mycelium is only obtainable by using a shovel enchanted with Silk Touch, otherwise it will turn into dirt. Giant Mushrooms can be found all over Mushroom Biomes, as well as regular-sized ones. Mushroom Biomes are rather devoid of life aside from the occasional peaceful mob or two.



Mooshrooms spawn in mushroom biomes.

Mushroom Islands have their own unique mob found only in this environment; the Mooshroom. Mooshrooms are an odd mix between cows and red mushrooms, and can be considered the most valuable of all farming mobs. Mooshrooms can provide beef, leather, be sheared for red mushrooms, and will produce mushroom stew when a player 'milks' one while holding a bowl. Hostile mobs don't spawn here, making the islands safe to call home as well as mine in. They are typically small in size, but occasionally a larger island may be encountered.


  • Mushroom biomes will not spawn any monsters/mobs both in the day and at night, including caves and underground areas, only if they are located under/within a mushroom biome. If there is a mob spawner (both created by player and naturally generated) will still spawn their respective mob until destroyed.
  • Mushroom biomes are some of the most hilly biomes in minecraft, so they are inconvenient for building.
