Innovative Activities in Nature

Our Wildfest brand started as a festival 4 years ago and now offers premium events all year.  We mix local produce, culinary artisans, award winning regional beverages with accessible luxury adding whimsical touches in unique natural environments to craft truly exceptional events. And as nature is exciting, rugged, beautiful, untamed and unpredictable, so too are our experiences.

Whatever your passion from heart racing adventures, soul fuelled explorations, outdoor wild food feasting or the calm quiet of sleeping under the stars, let us show you our region like never before.

Truffle & Olive Grove

The frosts of winter signal the start of truffle season with two incredible unearthed experiences on offer. One is our annual truffle hunts amongst the Iles and Robur Oak trees as we work with the truffle dogs to follow the mystical aroma of Black Perigord Truffles. You can then sit back to dine on a 3-course lunch or come to Kangaroo Valley for a 5 course Oil, Olive and Tapenade Degustation Experience in amongst the Olive Grove at Kangaroo Valley Olives
