The Truffle Paddock is surrounded by old indigenous trees and is a haven for kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, echidna and more than forty species of native birds. There are 600 truffle trees and it's one of the few Australian truffieres to produce both the French black winter truffle, and the small Italian white bianchetto truffle.

Truffle Hunt in the Truffle Paddock
Limited to six guests, you'll be greeted by Truffle Melbourne founder Nigel Wood with a warming coffee and Truffle Paddock honey
tastes, while he shares some truffle stories as you prepare to hunt (bring your gumboots and some warm clothing!).
Then it’s into the Truffle Paddock to search for those elusive black and white diamonds with Melbourne’s favourite working truffle dogs 'Forrest' and 'Comet' as your guides.
After the hunt, enjoy a glass of Champagne and truffle scrambled eggs with some more truffle stories.
You can also purchase any truffles found on the hunt.
