Truffle Hunt at Durran Durra
August 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Wednesday and Friday, repeating until 19/08/2022
Set in the picturesque southern tablelands of NSW, close to Canberra and the heritage town of Braidwood, our truffle farm has the perfect climate for growing the black winter truffle Tuber melanosporum. Set against a backdrop of the Tallaganda Range and harbouring an abundance of wildlife our farm offers a unique truffle experience. Learn how truffles grow and why this region is renowned for the quality of this product. Come and meet Bella our kelpie truffle dog and see how good she is at detecting these underground delicacies. See how truffles are washed and graded, then enjoy the ambience of sitting around an open pit fire and tasting and savouring the remarkable versatility of truffles in a number of prepared dishes. Fresh truffles are available to purchase on site. Virginia and Dick are looking forward to welcoming you as your hosts.
