Mobile food and drink operators sought for Torquay foreshore

Published on 19 June 2024


Mobile food and beverage operators can apply to operate from two sites on the Torquay foreshore, with applications open through the Great Ocean Road Coast and Parks Authority. The Authority is accepting applications from interested individuals to operate from either Cosy Corner or Elephant Walk in Torquay. Ensuring the Surf Coast remains a culinary destination, the Authority is encouraging the region’s best food trucks to apply.

Licences will be awarded to successful applicants for a period of up to three years.

Applications open today and close at 5pm, Friday 19 July 2024.

To support prospective applicants, we’re hosting an online public information briefing at 6pm on Wednesday, 26 June 2024. This session aims to answer any questions and guide operators through the application process.
