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 Wednesday 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 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, that you can find on its website, promises a rotating list of trucks and a number of themed food events each week. It's also got its own in-built 200-seater bar where you can grab cocktails, wine and beer by the bottle or on tap.

And because of it's overwhelming popularity over the years, the crew also opened up Welcome to Brunswick back in 2021 — replicating the winning formula for Brunswick locals.
