No longer do ravenous souls roam the mean streets of Melbourne on a wild-eyed search for their favourite food truck. Thanks to Welcome to Thornbury, Melbourne's first permanent food truck trailer park, some of the tastiest names in mobile food vending are parked in the same place Tuesday through Sunday each week
Dreamed up by the legends at Mr Burger, Welcome to Thornbury is located at 520 High Street, just a hop, skip and a jump from Croxton Train Station and the 86 tram line. Once a used car yard, the newly-renovated, 4000-square-metre venue features both indoor and outdoor seating, and hosts as many as six different food vendors and 700 hungry patrons a night.
The Welcome to Thornbury calendar, which you can find on their website, promises a rotating list of trucks and a number of themed food events each week. They've also got their own in-built 200-seater bar, where you can grab cocktails, wine and beer by the bottle or on tap.
