'Where Truffles Are Found All Year Round'
Extra Trading Sunday 24th September and Sunday 1st October
|The newest tourist attraction in
Stanthorpe - Gateway to the Granite Belt - is the Truffle Discovery Centre.
The rare and highly valuable French Black Perigord Truffle is often heard of in culinary circles but in commercial farming areas suddenly becomes very secretive due to security and bio-security reasons.
The Truffle Discovery Centre unearths all that is truffles with guided tours, information, products, interactive exhibits and Australias only all-year-round truffle dog hunt.
The Truffle Discovery Centre $5 Entry per adult Includes:
The Truffle Discovery Centre is open on Wednesday and Saturday from 10.30am to 3.30pm with tours every 30 minutes, and also on other days and times when the Lawdogs Australia 'Dog Show With Bite' is operating to the public which includes long weekends and school holiday variations - see their website for current details.
We are offering a rare behind the scenes opportunity ALL YEAR ROUND with the truffle dogs in training at Lawdogs Australia in their above ground training centre.
The 2017 truffle dog canine is Conan. Visitors can join the dog and handler team searching for an elusive truffle and share the same experience truffle farmers enjoy digging up one of the rare treats.
Truffle hunt experience is just $10 per person and should be booked in advance however we can usually accommodate walk in guests.
The trufferie is in seedling stage at the moment and fresh truffles are only available in Winter from our clients so please note participation in our truffle hunt includes the following:
