What a fabulous weekend staying in one of the cottages and enjoying a dinner of a perfectly cooked steak and risotto all topped with deliciously fresh truffles, and breakfast didn’t disappoint. Tricia and Rainer were perfect hosts. Today’s truffle hunt was so much fun Barry the kelpie is so clever finding all the truffles and his assistant Roxy makes sure we know exactly where the truffle is! Tricia’s knowledge is exceptional and the tasting at the end of the hunt is yummy! We look forward to bringing our family back another visit.

Wonderful informative morning spent in the truffle paddock with our hosts Trish and Rainer. They expertly showcased the paddock to plate experience with their truffle hunting dogs Barry and Roxy finding the truffles to the digging process then back to their barn for a food tasting. The passion they have for their farm and animals was heart-warming.

This was an absolutely brilliant experience! We were lucky to happen to book in on a day with no other guests so had Tricia and Rainer’s full attention. The dogs Barry and Roxy sniffed out truffles while we walked behind them and got our hands dirty unearthing the truffles where they scratched the soil. It was fantastic to work so closely with the dogs and even dig out the truffles ourselves. We enjoyed it so much we even accompanied Tricia and Rainer to the Trufferie later that afternoon again when they were harvesting truffles for a commercial order! The truffle tasting was also excellent and we tried some truffle honey, truffle butter on toast, truffle cheese, soup, pana cotta and chocolate! Tricia had very kindly accommodated me being vegan and although I couldn’t try everything there was more than enough to appreciate the flavour. We ended up buying a small truffle ($2 per gram) that we plan to infuse into chocolate, macadamias, butter, salt and grate over a meal. I can’t recommend this experience enough. If you have even the slightest interest in fine food / new flavours / foraging you should try truffle hunting 😊

Absolutely wonderful weekend. Stayed Saturday night with family in the Burrows, their guest accommodation, and was warmly greeted by Reiner and the dogs. Reiner got the fire pit up and running and we enjoyed some drinks around the fire before we had a fantastic dinner prepared by Trish. You can self cater as the camp kitchen right next to the rooms is well equipped. Next morning after our beautiful truffle loaded breakfast we had a lovely walk down to the river and then got meet the rest of the crew. Animal lovers will be in their element with an assortment of farm yard animals to pat. Truffle the pig, goats, horses, Alpaca and various other creatures. The Truffle hunt was so informative, Trish and Reiner are a fountain of knowledge and their passion shows through. Barry the kelpie was on fire and found plenty of truffles and everyone got to have a go at digging them out. Roxy tried her best to take his glory but Trish was having none of it. After the hunt we had selection of delicious dishes featuring truffles and of course you can purchase the freshly dug up truffles. Thanks so much Trish, Reiner and all the animals for such an amazing weekend. Highly recommend. Ps There are other accommodation options available including bush camping.

Fun morning hunting for truffles, expertly detected by Barry and his assistant, Roxy (ie the truffle dogs). It was a very cold day, so we warmed up after the hunt indoors by a fire and got to taste the fabulous truffles. Thanks for a great day.

You don’t need to be an experienced chef to enjoy black winter truffle.

Are you an established culinary genius searching for authentic, Australian-grown black truffle (Tuber melanosporum)? Or a connoisseur of fine dining, hoping to savour a gourmet dish outside the confines of a restaurant? There is nothing quite like using the truffle you hunted, for the home cook creating your own meal for family and friends will be delightful.
