Truffle Hunts

Put on your most colourful gumboots, grab your pooch and join us for a decadent day of all things truffles. This will be our 5th year of offering this exclusive handcrafted experience visiting a truffle orchard in regional Victoria. We start the day in Port Melbourne with some essential sniff and social time before getting comfy on Bella the dog welcoming bus for truffle trivia and a few competitive laughs. Morning tea followed by sparkling wine and truffle tastings greet us at the truffle orchard while the pooches enjoy getting to know each other off leash with our talented dog carer facilitating safe play. A guided truffle hunt kicks off first for the human folk and then the much anticipated and highly entertaining doggy truffle treasure hunt. With the excitement of the morning fading, tired little paws cannot wait for their massage and movie in the warmth of Bella from the soothing hands of our dog carers. Fur-parents, there is a truffle inspired 3 course lunch at a local restaurant with a roaring open fire to complete your day. This dog friendly experience is one of indulgence and fun with your pooch. Truffles will be available to purchase on the day. Very limited hunt dates!
