Established in 2013, Clear Range Truffles is located 50km south of Canberra, in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT) region. Being close to the magnificent Namadgi National Park, traditionally connected to the Ngunnawal people, the area is characterised by rugged and elevated terrain which form a part of the Australian Alps. Alongside the mountainous terrain, the Murrumbidgee River flows through this area, shaping its topography.

Due to its elevation and proximity to the Snowy Mountains, the climate in this area tends to be cooler and more temperate compared to lower-lying regions-ideal conditions for melanosporum growing. Summers are generally warm while winters are very cold and often snowy.

All aspects of the truffière are conducted by owners Mark and Maureen Ghiradello as well as their six year old Kelpie, Amber, who came to them as a three year old previously trained as an Australian Army sniffer dog to identify explosive devices. Given her special skills, Amber was retrained to sniff out the culinary treasures beneath the oak trees, a new career she’s taken to with gusto.

Clear Range truffles are produced without the use of chemicals or sprays, a practice Mark and Maureen regard as important in producing excellent truffles.
