About Field to Forest Oberon 2019

** Foraging Update **

While the official Field to Forest 2019 is now complete with great success, (just check out our Facebook and Instagram pages), we are still happy to do private foraging tours in the month of May for you. 

In fact, the rain has started falling again and conditions are just right for the foraging season to be extended. 

If you'd like a private foraging tour of your own, give us a call, send us an email or add a comment on Facebook or Instagram and we'll make it happen. Just ask the dozens of happy foragers this April.  

For those who missed Field to Forest 2019, read on and you'll see what we did in April 2019. 


During April 2019 ‘Field to Forest’
is a month-long array of activities in and around the Oberon region that
explores the delicacies and rare finds that one can forage for. 

The activities
include specialised forage tours for wild mushrooms, secluded forest lunches, a
newly launched wine trail and workshops with experts recounting their skills
and knowhow on foraging in the forest. 

Tour participants are encouraged to
attend the Foraging Workshop on Saturday 13th April at 9.30am to
gain insights into the safety, identification and best practises for forest
foraging.

4WD Foraging Tour 

This special 4WD Foraging tour has been created for you in partnership with Oberon Visitors Information Centre for the very first F2F Oberon 2019.

It is a great experience for those wanting to get out and about in amongst the pine forests of Oberon. Departing* from Oberon Visitors Information Centre, seats are strictly limited so please book early. 

You’ll be treated to a great 4WD trip to some of the more remote areas of the forests, where identification and forging are at its best. See and learn about the area, enjoy the comfort of a luxury 4WD and have fun. This 2 hour tour is fun for all. 

Forage, collect or simply photograph mushrooms in the wild. Take in all the sensations of the pine forests; the sights, the rich pine smell and the atmosphere. 

Join us on a 4WD adventure that you'll talk about for years to come.
