Fonty's Pool, Manjimup Western Australia
For the sixth year running the Southern Forests Food Council has joined the Truffle Kerfuffle in a partnership that will showcase the best of the Southern Forests region this June. As we celebrate the internationally renowned season for the Manjimup black truffle the spotlight is on the wealth of great producers in the region.
From meat and dairy to vegetables, fruit, nuts, wine and of course truffles, the Truffle Kerfuffle has a festival wide commitment to celebrate produce from the Southern Forests region. Local, national and international guest chefs to the festival are excited by the produce that they’ve got the opportunity to cook with and have a strong belief in the importance of agricultural communities like the Southern Forests.
Come along and enjoy some of the many amazing events and experiences on offer throughout the festival weekend.
Dark Delights Dinner
Join George Cooper from Food by the Chef for a dinner of dark delights at Southern Roasting Co. George's philosophy is to use the freshest local produce to provide an exciting new dining experience and create a memorable event. Think an immersive multi course menu of truffles, coffee, chocolate, meats and Genuinely Southern Forests
produce matched with local wines and George's signature private dining style.

Enjoy a truffle laden feast with freshly unearthed truffle whilst looking out at beautiful Fonty's Pool. Sue often uses local Coomer truffles in her menu at Shadow Wine Bar, so we have no doubt she will have some amazing recipes to showcase at this Sunday brunch event.
The Festival Village
Get your truffle fix by eating your way through the Festival Village where there is a bounty of truffles, gourmet food, premium wine, cider and local produce on offer to eat straight away or enjoy at home. Meet the local producers and families responsible for bringing you fresh, local, Genuinely Southern Forests produce as you enjoy live music and entertainment throughout the Festival Village.
A Winters Night
Michelin star chef Sam Aisbett started his culinary journey in his family's butchery business, where he developed an inherent love for food and a respect for those who produce it. Sam will be showcasing
Manjimup truffles harvested minutes from Fonty’s Pool at The Truffle and Wine Co. in a candlelit celebration of local produce, truffles and wine.
It's pretty rare for truffieres to invite guests to experience the harvesting of fresh truffle, but there's nothing quite like seeing firsthand the highly trained dogs unearthing the rare black truffle amongst the oak and hazelnut trees. For a true paddock to plate experience, truffle hunting is a must to meet the truffle dogs and learn about all aspects of truffles.
Ready to enjoy the weekend long celebration of one of the world's most luxurious ingredients, local produce and wines? Join truffle hunters to search out prized truffles, visit the gourmet Festival Village for a taste of the region or get your truffle fix at special dining events. Indulge in fireside cooking sessions in the Chef’s Cabin, catch free demonstrations and entertainment on the festival grounds; discover the farmers, producers, winemakers and community that make up the Southern Forests; or simply soak up the laid back atmosphere.

Two million Australians are at high risk of type 2 diabetes.

Type 2 diabetes can be prevented or delayed in up to 58 per cent of cases through early detection and lifestyle modification. The campaign will also feature the personal stories of people who have prevented and who are living with type 2 diabetes.

Warren Health Service opening
The WA Country Health Service’s (WACHS) greatly anticipated, state-of-the-art $37.6 million Warren Health Service is undergoing a staged opening from next week.
More than 500 people including staff and community members registered their interest to attend tours of the new health service before it opened.
“We had an outstanding response to our sneak peek tours on the 8th and 13th of June,” said WACHS-South West Acting District Manager Warren, Sally Towie.
“We had representatives from St John Ambulance WA, the local Shire, Department of Fire and Emergency Services, Department of Children and Family Services and WA Police to name just a few.
“There were also Aboriginal elders, hospital staff, members of the District Health Advisory Council as well as the local community.
“Everyone was thankful for the opportunity to tour the hospital and feedback was very positive, most people said it was amazing and much bigger than they realised.
“They also thought the ambience was restful and enjoyed the warmth of the hospital which has controlled air.
“They liked the rammed-earth walls, the inpatient rooms and the amount of light that filters into the hospital.”
The first section of the new hospital to open on Monday 18 June will be Ambulatory Care, where outpatients will attend booked appointments. Pathwest will open the following day on Tuesday 19 June.
The emergency department at the old Warren District Hospital will stay open until 7am on 25 June at which point it will close and the new emergency department at Warren Health Service will open.
On the same day all inpatients will be transferred to the new hospital and next of kin will be notified.
The Warren Health Service is located next door to the Warren District Hospital at 16 Hospital Avenue, Manjimup. Phone and fax numbers will change on June 25. The new phone number will be 9772 5100 and the new fax will be 9772 5109.
The $37.6 million Warren Health Service is part of a $300 million capital works program delivered by the WA Country Health Service to improve hospitals in 37 towns across the Wheatbelt, Great Southern, Midwest and South West.
