Truffle Hunting

On the hunt for truffles

The black truffle is prized by foodies for its intense, earthy taste, and in the winter months of June to August, the hunt is on to find them. These buried delicacies prefer to grow in rich soil in a cold climate, with frosts adding to the intensity of flavour. So rug up, pull on your gumboots and join the hunt while relishing a gourmet getaway in one of New South Wales’s prettiest locations.

Lowes Mount Truffiere in Oberon, approximately 1 hour’s drive from Chalets at Blackheath, you can forage for truffles, taste them in the truffle room, and enjoy a tasting platter of truffle paired delights. This family-run farm is surrounded by pine forests overlooking the beautiful Tarana valley. You can pick up fresh Périgord black truffles (June to August) along with a selection of truffled products such as truffle honey and truffle salt.
