Food truck parks are even a bigger trend than food trucks in Melbourne at the moment and Dockyard is the newest one that’s set up inside Seaworks in Williamstown.

Dockyard is open every Friday night 5-9pm in July and August with a rotating lineup of five food trucks, of which at least one is a dessert option.

While the food choices are small Dockyard has a couple of advantages over other food truck parks in Melbourne:

(a) indoors, with heaters!

(b) scenic panoramic views of the Melbourne skyline – watch the sunset and enjoy the Docklands winter fireworks at 7:30pm;

(c) boats to admire, including the Sea Shepherd;

(d) free parking on site and in surrounding streets….

…and of course everyone loves the value-for-money food that food trucks provide, especially on can’t-be-bothered-to-cook Friday nights!

The set up is inside the Seaworks  sheds and they’ve done wonders to turn a cavernous industrial space into a place that’s cosy and welcoming.

The trucks are parked in a semi-circle and the ‘forecourt’ set up with furniture and games, including a couch with a cosy fireplace and milk crates galore.

On our visit we sampled food from ToastaPizza Wagon and Smokin’ Barry’s BBQ, had a play of foozball and generally soaked up the atmosphere of having an adventure under the cover of darkness.

On the last night of Dockyard’s winter opening, Friday 28 August, there will be a night market and buskers too.
