A Bucket List Experience!
We partner with our favourite Victorian truffieres every winter to host fresh truffles hunts throughout the black truffle season. Whether rain, hail or shine, guests rug up and pull on their gumboots to enjoy a genuine bucket list experience - joining the truffle grower and their working truffle dogs on a stroll through the truffle patch.
All of our 2021 hunt partner farms are located within about 100 km from the Melbourne CBD, so they're easy to get to.
You can book your hunt directly with Truffle Melbourne and have confidence that in the event of a change in COVID restrictions, you'll get a full refund.
You can also buy the truffles found on your hunt to take home and enjoy!

Enjoy a truffle hunt at Gembrook Truffles with truffle dog 'Willow' before retiring to the 'Truffle Den' for a truffled morning or afternoon tea on this family-run farm in the Yarra Valley, just 60 minutes drive from Melbourne.
Central Victoria's Truffle Treasures have been hosting events since 2010, bringing people and truffles together to experience the sight, texture, aroma and taste of earth's 'black gold' with clever canines Abbie and Holly.
Visit Red Hill Truffles on the Mornington Peninsula and be charmed by Jenny and her super sniffer truffle dog Thomas as they lead you through the oak and hazelnut trees.
