The festival will be held on Sunday, August 5th 2018 at Church Rd, The Truffle Discovery Centre at The Summit.

“Last winter every other state with a cold climate had truffle tourism but Queensland didn’t,” he said.

THE GRANITE Belt is known for everything from apples to wines, but one producer wants to put the Granite Belt truffle industry on the map.

For this reason, owner of Lawdogs Truffle Discovery Centre Matthew Hibberd will be hosting Queensland’s first-ever truffle festival, named Tartufo.

He said the day would consist of all things truffle.

“It will involve cooking demonstrations, truffle tasting, live music and other activities,” Mr Hibberd said. “A big feature will be meeting the detection dogs and puppies that actually find the truffles for the farmers.”

“Last winter every other state with a cold climate had truffle tourism but Queensland didn’t,” he said.

The festival will include guest chef Josh Lawson, who is a judge for the Queensland Tourism Awards, as well as local chef Sarah Cowper from Suttons.

“I want it to be a family event so if you just want a cheaper ticket and mum and dad and kids sit on the rug and buy a sausage sizzle, you can.

“Or you can spend $100 and do the full gourmet meal like the other states, and you don’t have to travel to Sydney, Canberra or Western Australia to do it.”

Alongside the cooking and truffle tasting there will also be a space for markets.

Mr Hibberd is offering free spaces at the event for not-for-profits and businesses. Anyone interested in holding a stall should phone Mr Hibberd on 0467255337.

Event tickets cost $69 to $99 as an early bird price. Visit www.trybooking.com/ book/event?eid=374061&.
