June - August (Truffle Season)

The Truffle Festival, Canberra & Capital Region


Taste the delicate magic of the truffle festival in Canberra! Starting in 2009, the Canberra & Region Truffle Festival has been putting the Canberra region on the map for its high quality, fresh, black Perigord truffles.

What are truffles?

Truffles are a fungus grown underground as a result of a symbiotic relationship with trees, usually oak and hazlenut, and resemble an irregular, rough-skinned potato. Truffles are considered a culinary delicacy. Black perigord truffles have been cultivated in Europe and America for some time and have more recently been grown in Australia.  Truffles grow best in Mediterranean climate, with warm summers and cold winters, making Canberra and region the perfect location to support a thriving truffle industry.

How to Experience the truffle festival

Through a range of events and experiences, the Festival showcases the Canberra region as the premier destination for a truffle experience in Australia. From a simple breakfast to elaborate degustation dinners, you can enjoy truffles at many of the region's finest restaurants and venues during the truffle festival. Join one of the popular truffle hunts so you can see first hand how truffles are harvested. Book yourself into a cooking class to learn how to use truffles. Visit local food markets or the truffle farms themselves to speak with the farmers, purchase some truffles and cook your own truffle inspired meal!

For a taste of what you might expect at this year's Festival, check out this video preview.
