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