Farmer with his dog and truffle

The Truffle Farm Canberra

Canberra is Australia's premier truffle hunting destination. The Truffle Farm Canberra specialises in professionally run truffle hunts and world-class cooking demonstrations.

Rug up for a wintery experience in the oak forest on Canberra’s only truffle farm, and you’ll be rewarded with the jewels of the kitchen: truffles. Follow their team of highly trained (and super friendly) truffle dogs as they sniff out prized black truffles. These exceptionally talented dogs roam amongst the 3,000 trees on the farm to find a piece of the ‘black magic’.

Once the perfect truffle is found, head back into the warmth of the truffle shed to discover the secrets to using this highly prized delicacy. Award winning Michelin star chef Damian Brabender will prepare an exciting array of decadent dishes with matching local wines for you to try. Let the cooking demonstration inspire you to purchase your own truffle and begin creating magic at home.

The truffle season runs from early June to September. Sunday hunts are often sell out so book early to ensure your spot.

During 2016 the Truffle Farm Canberra are also offering Saturday hunts with breakfast, hunts with lunch (Fridays to Sundays) and a special Truffle High Tea on 13th June.

We attended a truffle hunt as part of the Jamala Wildlife Lodge package and really enjoyed it. The talk prior to the hunt is so interesting and included some truffled brie and truffled honey...
