The premier tourist attraction in Stanthorpe is the Truffle Discovery Centre Stanthorpe located at Lawdogs Australia. 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 and tastings, gourmet product range, interactive exhibits and Australias only all-year-round truffle dog hunt.
The Truffle Discovery Centre $5 entry per adult includes:
- Guided tour (every 30 minutes) of our newly planted Truffiere, Discovery Centre exhibits, truffle detection dog training ground and tasting of truffle products.
- Interactive truffle gallery – see, smell, taste truffle products
- Gourmet food tastings sourced from local, regional and global produce including truffle infused oils, honey, salts, honey flavour fusions, jams, sauces and European food lines.
Local, Regional, Global Foods – From local homemade savoury scones with truffled butter, to tea and coffees, coffee syrups, regional honeys, jams, cheeses, condiments and preserves, global foods such as stuffed olives, stuffed peppers and sauerkraut imported from Poland, Macedonia, Greece. Many tastings are available during opening hours from around the world.
The Truffle Discovery Centre is open on every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday from 10.00am to 3.30pm with tours every 30 minutes from 10.30am, 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. Please note currently Sundays are free entry with a self guided tour, staff will assist with information during tastings in the gallery.
