happy hunting grounds

As you can imagine the truffle growers across the Canberra region love the thrill of the truffle hunt and there’s nothing quite like sharing it with new friends. Rug up this winter and immerse yourself in the sights and sounds of the Canberra region’s top truffle farms:

Watch the clever truffle dogs as they follow their nose and find the mysterious ‘black diamonds’ hidden under the trees. Learn everything you could ever want to know about truffles, enjoy some truffle tastings, and buy some fresh black winter truffle to take home.

A winter experience you won’t forget!

Please contact venues directly to confirm details and/or book your experience prior to your visit. Times, prices and inclusions vary from farm to farm. Note: truffle hunts always sell out quickly so book your Canberra region truffle hunt today.
