Truffle Hunts with Lunch - Southern Highlands

As Winter descends upon the Southern Highlands so does the opportunity to enjoy fresh truffles. We have created what we believe mixes the best on offer in the area for hunts with a delicious menu and wine tasting from a premium local producer. Now that is great way to spend a chilly day in the Highlands.

This self-drive experience includes a truffle hunt, paired with a delicious truffle inspired lunch and wine tasting at a new location in Big Hill near Marulan about 30 minutes from Berrima. It's a stunning drive and property.

Upon arrival, we head into the Iles and Robur Oak trees to watch the truffle dog follow the mystical aroma of these tubular delights and unearth them from the tree roots. Then we enjoy a country lunch at the ruins featuring fresh Truffle with a matched wine-tasting from a local award winning cool climate wine maker.

What we loved: gorgeous intimate setting at the trufflery. Small group of like minded people. Hot and generous 3 course comfort food truffle focused menu for lunch, complete with decorated tables. Interesting assortment of local wines to accompany the meal. Truffle games with a prize. The hosts were informative, friendly and welcoming as this trufflery is also located at their residence. Its a shame it was raining as we were told lunch normally takes place under open sky in the trufflery. The wet weather option was inside the shed which was still good especially with the 3 open log burning fires on the go. Things for next time to consider: As it was raining we were advised to bring layers and a rain coat but you really needed gum boots rather than normal walking boots given the amount of water. We had lunch with wet cold feet, but we got spot close to the open fire which helped offset the cold. The directions to the trufflery were confusing on the email, however if you ignore this and put the address directly into your car navigation or Google maps you will be fine. Toilets were located only inside the house the owners house. Might be a consideration to build some guest toilets adjacent to the homestead so people don't have to invade their space. Wonderful short jaunt (left Sydney at 8am - got there about 10am for 10:15am start and home to Sydney by 4pm) for food and southern highlands lovers. We are looking forward to seeing what other food adventures we can join later in the year.

It was our first time at the Feast of the Beast, and I can't tell you how impressive the night was. To host 250 people, with food, music, drinks and a range of entertainment, out in the middle of a forest, and in the middle of a Southern Highlands winter....well, it was nothing short of miraculous. Amanda and the Wild Food team did an AMAZING job. It was fantastic to see so many people get into the spirit of the occasion with some incredible costumes And with so many flowing cloaks and fire pits, it was also good to see that no one went up in flames. A great night, and we'll most definitely be back next year.

My husband and I had a fabulous evening at Feast of the Beast – well done to all the organisers. There was a an issue with the locked gate at the entry of the national park which held us up for awhile, and then more of a queue to enter the space, but once in there it was really fun. Delicious food and plenty of it, and the mulled wine absolutely hit the spot. I can’t wait for next year!

Natalie, thanks so much for writing a review for us and yes we have already talked to NSW Forestry to address the gate issue. Next year we have another entrance which is better suited to handle our growing numbers so there should be no delays. Thanks also for honest and actionable feedback to make our event, even better next year

My partner and I travelled all the way up from Melbourne to attend the Feast of the Beast. The location was in the depth of the forest with faerie lights and delicious roast beasts to eat. I enjoyed the burning of the forest effigy, and the meat was tasty. Drawbacks: The music for the event (an event advertised as going back to our Celtic roots) was surprisingly modern, and a bit jarring against the setting and costuming and eats. I would have preferred something more traditional and Celtic for the length of the event, and the veggies were a bit undercooked and crunchy. Pros: The people-watching, the meat, and the bus ride to and from the event were well worth the event price and road trip up from Victoria. They were good about accommodating food restrictions, and the drinks were delicious and filling. I'd recommend this event for those who are seeking a night out in the forest with good eats and the opportunity to dress up with family and friends.

WOW that is incredible that you drove up from Melbourne. Thank you. It was a great night and whilst overall everyone had an incredible time, they has been so appreciative of the difficult logistics of the night. And four stars tells me overall you loved it. I agree we need some Celtic music as well as the dance vibe that had over a 100 of our guests rocking in the forest, so that is being actioned and we have ready taken steps to improve the vegetables. Working in the cold is very challenging but each year we listen and grow and we do appreciate all genuine and actionable feedback We hope you will come again next year and see the improvements you contributed to
