Lovely Valley Truffles

Exclusive to the Fleurieu Peninsula region is Lovely Valley Truffles, located in Myponga, a one hour drive from Adelaide, South Australia. Join owners Jayne & Greg and Adelaide Hills Truffle Dogs on a unique and exclusive truffle hunt experience for the rare black truffle.

Greg & Jayne started out truffle growing as a hobby, they hand-planted their first fifty trees at Lovely Valley Truffles in 2012, a mixture of English oak, French oak and hazelnut trees, their roots inocculated with French black truffle fungi.  For the first two years the trees were hand-watered with rainwater, ten litres per tree, twice a week over summer. Allowed to grow naturally, the trees have climbed to a healthy three metres.

As interest in truffles – the black gold of cuisine- from the Fleurieu Peninsula grows, Lovely Valley Truffles are hosting truffle hunt tours in winter 2023 which you can also combine into a two night package with Heysens Rest Cabins which are located on the Lovely Valley Truffles property.
