Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and join the 'Forage for Funghi' winter adventure in the spectacular Goldfields region of Victoria!
Presented by Cregan Creative, this fun-filled food and cultural experience begins at Ballarat Train Station on Saturday 6th July, just before 1pm (you can board the Wendouree to Melbourne via Ballarat V/Line from Southern Cross Station).

On Saturday morning, you will be treated to a delicious breakfast and then it is off to the truffiere with its beautiful oak trees.
Truffles are an expensive fungi which are a wonderful addition to any style of cooking. During the day, you will uncover the art of foraging for truffles and then how and what to eat it with. Enjoy the spoils of your labour too - perhaps with a glass of bubbles in your other hand!
After a couple of hours, you'll be dropped back at Ballarat Train Station and will surely enjoy the train ride home! Why not get some friends to come with you and let Cregan Creative show you around - Regional Victoria is where it's at!
