Tarago

The small village of Tarago is 11 kilometres along the Braidwood Road between Braidwood and Goulburn. It's home to a number of historic buildings including the Anglican Church and Loaded Dog Hotel which was the meeting place for many bushrangers including the notorious Frank Gardiner and Ben Hall. Much of the hotel is still in the original stone, brick and wood of that era.

For many years, Tarago was a staging post and railhead for the southern line. The major industry in the area was the Woodlawn Mine that produced copper, lead and zinc; now it has been converted to the Woodlawn Bioreactor.

Tarago Truffles


Tarago Truffles began with an initial planting of 550 inoculated oaks and hazels in 2002. Today it has expanded to a successful commercial truffiere of 4,500 trees. Owned and managed by Denzil and Anne Sturgiss and family, it is part of their small mixed farm enterprise in the Tarago-Bungendore area of the Southern Tablelands of NSW where the soils and the climate favour the cultivation of the black winter truffle.

Denzil's dream of successfully growing the French black winter truffle (the fruiting body of the fungus Tuber melanosporum) is now a reality. During the frosty months of June, July and August, they harvest and market these supreme culinary delicacies to discerning chefs and diners who enjoy fresh, seasonal foods with subtle flavours and sensual aromas. During these months, there are truffle hunting experiences for visitors to enjoy a close encounter with these priced delicacy, booking essential.
