TRUFFLE KERFUFFLE Australian Truffle Festival

22–24 JUNE 2018

“WA’s premier Tuber melanosporum party.” Australian Gourmet Traveller

An all weekend celebration of one of the world’s most luxurious ingredients, fresh black truffles, just minutes from where they are unearthed. Manjimup is the heart of Australian truffle country with more truffles found here than anywhere in the Southern Hemisphere. Join in the festivities of Truffle Kerfuffle and be consumed by the heady aroma of truffles at their freshest; go hunting, taste your way through the Festival Village, meet farmers and growers, discover local wine and produce, and indulge in truffle laden experiences with world class chefs. The Shire of Manjimup is just 3.5 hours south of Perth and 90 min east of Margaret River.

WELCOME

to Manjimup, Southern Forests The State Government is a proud sponsor of Truffle Kerfuffle through Tourism WA’s Regional Events Program. The program supports medium to large regional events across the State to boost tourism, increase community vibrancy and participation, and develop regional areas.

Hon Paul Papalia CSC MLA Minister For Tourism

The Regional Events Program plays an important role in positioning Western Australia as an exciting destination to visit and a great place to live, by showcasing and promoting a region’s unique and diverse attractions. Tourism is a key pillar of the State Government’s plan to diversify the economy, create jobs and develop business opportunities, especially in regional Western Australia. In 2016-17, visitors spent $10.1 billion in the State, including $4.5 billion in regional areas. The State Government has a strategy to increase the value of tourism in Western Australia to $12 billion by 2020, including a regional contribution of $4.75 billion. We hope everyone enjoys the event and takes the time to explore the South West region.

Hon Alannah MacTiernan MLC Minister For Regional Development


In the heart of Australian Truffle Country As you drive into the Southern Forests, through the dense wooded landscape and winding roads, there is a feeling that you are some place special. What gives Manjimup its magic when it comes to truffles is anyones guess. Manjimup produces nearly 90% of Australia’s annual truffle harvest. During the season truffle dogs and hunters spend their days unearthing fresh truffles; sending them to over 30 countries around the world within hours of harvest. Bountiful, the rich loam soil, and plentiful rainfall forms one part of this success story; the growers, committed to quality and consistency, the other side of the tale. The Australian truffle season runs from early June to late August.

The allure of black truffle is hard to put your finger on, their aroma beguiles. Rich, earthy, pungent and deeply intoxicating, a little goes a long way. The knowledge that the season is short, that they are rare and prized the world over, adds to the appeal. The fruiting body of a fungus, truffles grow beneath the soil on the roots of oak and hazelnut trees.

Farming heritage stretching across continents and 600 years; one answer to the question of how the Pottinger family have created one of the world’s most productive truffière.
