POINT Nepean is one of 11 national parks where food trucks will be allowed for a six-month trial.
The summer trial in the Quarantine precinct will be followed next year by a winter trial starting in June.
“The trial will provide an opportunity to test food and beverage services in appropriate parks without leaving a permanent footprint in the park,” Parks Victoria chief operating officer Simon Talbot said.
“Mobile traders will need to meet certain criteria including environmental considerations, social benefits to the community and the ability to strategically align with Parks Victoria and the Victorian governments’ healthy choices guidelines.” Parks Victoria is calling for mobile traders for expressions of interest to offer food and beverage services as part of a mobile food services trial.
The trial licence term will be a maximum of six months from November this year to April 2018 for summer sites. Winter only sites will be available for three to six months starting 1 June 2018.
Other parks in the trial are Baw Baw National Park, Lerderderg State Park, Maroondah Reservoir Park, the former Olinda Golf Course car park (adjacent to the National Rhododendron Garden), Silvan Reservoir, Westerfolds Park, Westgate Park, Yan Yean Reservoir Park, Yarra Bend Park and Yarra Ranges National Park.
