The Commons team has spent the last twelve months traveling across Australia on a mission to taste test every possible food truck. The line up is a result of this colossal mission to present only the very best food vendors at The Commons

Each merchant has their own unique flavour, passion and style. You won’t be short on choices, as no two vendors are a like. From taco’s to Brazilian BBQ, burgers to traditional Nepalese curries, you can treat your tastebuds with a different dish each night with more than twenty different options to choose from.

The hardest challenge for you at The Commons will be deciding where to start.


The Commons is a completely cashless event, that means we’re keeping it simple! You’ll have to bring your cards for any purchases made at The Commons, we accept all cards on site, including tap and go!
