Coffee comes to Point Nepean National Park
Thursday 7 March, 2019
Parks Victoria trialling mobile café at visitor hot spot
Parks Victoria is responding to strong feedback from visitors by trialling a low impact food and beverage service at Point Nepean National Park, meeting growing visitor needs at the popular location.
The mobile coffee trading ‘trial’ will provide the potential for testing of short-term, seasonal activation that marries contemporary visitor needs within a unique park setting.
It will also enable Parks Victoria to assess the appropriateness, viability and scalability of a more developed service at the park in the future. The service is also consistent with the activation principles identified in the Point Nepean Master Plan 2017 for the Quarantine Station.
Operating out of a beautifully restored Franklin Regent caravan, the operators, Woodland Folk, are Mornington Peninsula based with a passion for local and sustainable products.
Offering an award-winning coffee blend from Little Rebel Coffee Roastery, fair-trade certified organic tea from Tielka by Rye Chai and a small menu of light snacks, the trial will continue until the end of April 2019.
The mobile café can be found at the Quarantine Station, Point Nepean National Park (8am – 1pm) on the following dates:
Monday 11 (Labour Day)
Friday 19 (Good Friday)
Monday 22 (Easter Monday)
As this is a trial, there will be some flexibility with these dates as Parks Victoria and the operators learn and respond to visitor requirements. Any changes to dates can be found via the Woodland Folk Facebook Page.
