Winter has arrived in NSW, bringing a range of exciting new experiences. Go truffle hunting in Oberon, ride a steam train through the misty Blue Mountains, find a retro beachside takeaway in Newcastle, and join a long lunch in Mudgee celebrating Wirdajuri land and culture to mark the end of National Reconciliation Week.

EXPERIENCES

Hunt for truffles

Head into the fields with a trained scent dog to search for one of the most coveted culinary treasures: the truffle. Working truffle farm and lodge RedGround is the first truffiere in Australia to offer a bookable truffle-hunting experience for eight months of the year. From February to October, visitors can book in a truffle hunt on RedGround’s farm in Oberon’s high country and then cook and feast on the hunt's winnings.

Blue Mountains by rail

After closing its tracks for 11 years, the Zig Zag Railway in Lithgow has officially reopened to offer fortnightly weekend trips through the Blue Mountains. The family-friendly heritage steam train travels the original rail path down the picturesque western escarpment, almost untouched since the 1800s.

A new historic home

Warren has a new centre for art and history, the Warren Museum and Art Gallery. A hour’s drive west from Dubbo, the new museum, set in a recently refurbished heritage building on the town’s main street, features rotating exhibitions and an artist-in-residence space.

One-on-one wine tour

See how wine is made from the vine to the bottle on a personalised behind-the-scenes tour of Cupitts Estate with their newly launched Meet the Winemaker experience. The immersive tour at the South Coast winery near Ulladulla includes a personal tour with the winemaker, underground barrel tastings, artisanal cheese plates and more.

FOOD & DRINK 

Indigenous fine dining 

To celebrate the end of National Reconciliation Week and Wiradjuri land and culture, Bulaguy Bagaraygan (Saltbush Gathering) will see an al fresco long lunch take over Lowe Wines’ Tinja Farm on 4 June. A collaboration between Mudgee’s renowned restaurant The Zin House and the National Indigenous Culinary Institute (NICI), the lunch will be led by Indigenous guest chefs and NICI alumni Luke Bourke (Rockpool) and Sam Bourke (Next Door), with drinks by Lowe Wines, plus non-alcoholic beverages made from native ingredients grown on site. 

Jana’s new era 

QT Newcastle’s signature restaurant Jana has welcomed award-winning executive chef Shayne Mansfield to the pass. The ex-Flotilla chef brings his culinary philosophies of sustainable practice and premium produce to the venue, with NSW menu items including Game Farm quail from the Hunter, Margra lamb from Oberon and beef from Branxton’s Hungerford Meat Co.  

Happy as Larrie’s 

Newcastle gets a fun dose of new nostalgia as Larrie’s, a retro-inspired takeaway fish shop and bottle shop, opens at Merewether Beach Hotel. As well as classic fish and chips, menu items nod to favourite dishes from another time, including prawn toast, pineapple rings, chip butties and more.
