Truffle Farm Tour and Dinner

After a great line up of sessions we have planned a group tour to The Truffle Farm Canberra where you will join the team for a unique experience hunting for the elusive black truffle. The tour will last 1.5 hours and once concluded, you will be treated to a delicious dinner at one of Canberra's most unique venues, Monster Kitchen and Bar, Hotel Hotel.
