2019 Truffle Hunt Program

You, the dog, and the early morning mist - truffle hunting is a unique experience and one for the bucket list! There are four farms to choose from with dates right through the season. We can also organise a private group hunt - email us at info@trufflemelbourne.com with your details.

Truffle Hunt Locations

The Truffle Paddock is Truffle Melbourne founder Nigel Wood's truffiere in Grantville. Surrounded by indigenous trees, native birds and wildlife, hunt for black and white truffles with Melbourne's favourite truffle hunting dogs 'Spice' and 'Arrow' as your guide.

Black Cat Truffles offer a slice of truffle heaven, with views overlooking the Creswick State Forest in the horizon. Put on your gumboots, rug up in your winter woolies and head off on an adventure hunting for Black Winter Truffles with truffle dogs Ella, Harry and Narla as your guides.

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. With more than twenty hunts and events throughout the season, you'll have plenty of opportunities to taste, smell, photograph, purchase and even devour freshly harvested truffle.

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'. Enjoy a truffle hunt with clever canines Abbie and Holly, cooking classes or even a luxury 'Real Housewives of Melbourne' style adventure! Read Time Out Melbourne's review here.

At Wongarra Farm experience a farm tourtruffle hunt with Riley the truffle dog and a light lunch in one of Victoria's oldest truffieres, situated in the Southern Otways and overlooking the ocean. The farm also produces free-range Wessex Saddleback pigs, Welsh Black cattle, Suffolk sheep and pastured chickens!
