I had never considered adding truffle hunting to my “backpacking Australia” to-do list. Running around with some dogs while they sniff and root among the trees does have a certain appeal. Western Australia is the continent’s largest truffle producer, with a cooler climate and rich soil that mimics top truffle areas of Europe. The truffle season is only three months long (June-August), so, whether working the fields, or just attending the tour, being there at the right time will be essential.
