      Great idea! How about some more international street food as well?

      • Melissa says:

        Ooooh! Like a bahn mi bus, or mee… Mmmm… Now I’m hungry!

        • Claire says:

          I’d love a bahn mi thit bus yummmmmm.

          • Yappies says:

            Waterford Bakehouse sell BMT and they’re huge!

    2. Jackie says:

      This is a fantastic idea! I would love to see some international options in the coming weeks.

    3. Judith says:

      What about coming to Tech Park?

      • Kathryn Peckham says:

        yes we have almost no options over here….. :(

    4. carol says:

      The food truck initiative is fantastic. I agree with other comments that it would be great to have more international flavours thrown into the midst that would also cater for the culturally diverse Curtin population.

    5. Gerald says:

      Is there such a thing as a soup truck? Or a roast dinner truck? International flavours would be great but I really want some western style warm foods for the colder months ahead.

      • Rach says:


        And pasta which is Italian so technically ‘international’.

    6. Digital Media Unit says:

      Hi guys, for those of you asking about international food, we have Japanese dumplings and Italian pizza on the way (ok, so pizza might not be all that exotic, but it’s tasty) as well as French, German and Turkish food the following week. And we’re still searching! If you know of any good international pop-ups, let us know!

    7. Texas Pride says:

      Great idea. Works all over the world promoting quality fresh food with lots of international options. However, why such restricted hours with no time on the weekends? Most people I know that would like to attend (spend money, bring other people, etc) work M-F 9 – 5.

    8. Penalope Kelly says:

      can you please list this weeks vendors and locations. trying to locate Jumplings for today. help please

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Penalope – all done, but we’re afraid you’ll have to wait until tomorrow for Jumplings!

    9. Adam Richards says:

      I went to Miss Tartufo and found the coffee tasteless with burnt milk. The ice cream is ok but had pieces of ice/ frost suggesting it had previously defrosted?? Not good

    10. Penny says:

      can you please list this weeks vendors and locations

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Whoops, sorry Penny – done now!

    11. Penny says:

      no food vans at the locations mentioned above today, are they all on holidays?

    12. Naomi Drysdale says:

      Hi there, love this whole idea! Just wondering also, how would one become involved in this? I don’t have a food truck, it’s more of a food cart – with a simple, healthy tasty snack – and cheap too! Is it possible to join the foodie fun of Park’d at Curtin?

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Naomi, we’ve forwarded your question to the organiser.

        • Liz. says:

          Hi, how can I get my food truck involved involved?

    13. Penny says:

      can you please put a sample menu of the food vans, so customers have an idea of what is available or a description of what they offer.

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Penny, great idea – we’ve added descriptions of each van under the map above.

    14. Michelle says:

      I am loving the food vans, great job Curtin!

    15. Ellen says:

      Hi there, love this food vans ideas! im the event management student in CBS, and currently we have assessment about how to run a food event and need to do the survey from the event organizer. May i have a contact with the organiser to get more information about this event? Plz!!!

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Sure Ellen, no problem – we’ll get in touch with you today.

    16. Pei Shan Rebecca Kiew says:

      I love the presence of this trucks. So much more choices now and its friendly to my wallet! =D

      Just wondering if this pop up truck will be continued next semester.. I have not done trying everything yet!

    17. Jurgen says:

      my wife and I are building a food van to sell our Belgian Gourmet products: mainly waffles, ice cream and chocolates (perlines/pralines) but later on also belgian sausages, coffee and Belgian Fries (the original, genuine potato chips).
      We were woundering what it takes to be allowed to park our van on Curtin University Campus ground.
      Can someone eplain via email please ?
      Also, feel free to let us know if anyone would be interested in the above food on the campus.
      Thx in advance
      Jurgen & Annelies

    18. Penny says:

      Thankyou JUMPLINGS for always making me the best lunch. The food and service is always 100%.

    19. Juliana says:

      Hi, I mentioned the food trucks to my uncle who is very interested in the whole “Park’d” at Curtin. He asked me to find out how the system works and whether he could bring a food truck to Curtin. Can you please let me know so I can relay the information to him.
      Thank you

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Juliana, we’ve sent you an email.

They also have Coxinha (fried shredded chicken mash balls), shoe string fries and truck sauce plus fresh coconuts and brazilian desserts.

        They’ll be at 216 Forecourt today (Wednesday), not Angazi as originally planned.

    24. Robyn says:

      Can you please list if any of the vans have gluten-free offerings? I know Wholey Crepe do – that’s why they get my business every time (as well as being delicious)

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Robyn, Hey Pesto has gluten-free burgers. We’ll try to find out if there are any more gluten-free options!

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Robyn, we’ve just found out that as of next week, Vince will have gluten-free options at Vince’s Woodfired Pizzas.

        • Robyn says:

          Fantastic! Thanks for the investigation, that gives us coeliacs a few more options :)

    25. DK says:

      Is Curtin considering increasing the variety of food van operators on campus? I am planning to start a mobile food business and would like to know how I can be part of this excitement. Can you please email to me the terms and conditions. Thanks.

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi DK, thanks for your interest – we’re always looking for more Park’d vendors to come on campus. We’ll give your details to the organisers.

    26. Peter says:

      Hi. I am interested in this event. I am just wondering how could I get involved with you. I can make healthy traditional Chinese pancakes. It’s delicious and cheap. Does any chance I could join in you? Urgently need help. Thank you!

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Thanks for your interest Peter – we’ve passed your info along to the organisers.

    27. Deborah says:

      What is the name of the food tent that sold hot funnel cakes last Wednesday?

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Deborah, do you mean the spicy gozlemes sold at Turkish Dome?

    28. maya says:

      Do the park’d vendors accept Guild “campus cash” cards or cash only?

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Maya, none of them accept Guild cards – sorry! They’re all cash. Jumplings does accept EFTPOS though.

    29. Kyle says:


      We have a food van which we are keen to get involved at Curtin. Who can we speak with about the products we offer and registering our interest for Semester 1 next year.

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Taila, we can’t make any promises… but you miiiiight see Butty’s on campus next week, for one week only! We want to get them back a lot more next year. They’re so good that they’re in very high demand right now!

    31. Sean says:

      Looking for today’s list… it doesn’t seem to have been updated for this week.

      • Digital Media Unit says:

        Hi Sean, it’s up!

    32. Sanchit says:

    33. Rob says:

      Hi Park’d – I’d also like more information about getting involved with this great project with my own food van. Digital Media Unit can you also send me through an email like the rest.

    38. June says:

      I am very interested in being a part of this. Are you able to send me information please?
      Thank you.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi June, sure, we’ll email you with more info.

        • June says:


          I have not received your email yet. Are you able to send it through. I really am very interested and would like to present my food to the Curtin community.

          I hope to hear from you soon.

          Thanks. : )

          • Curtin University says:

            Hi June, sorry about that. I’ll follow that up for you.

    39. sue siallagan says:

      I am interested in a food stall. what days are the food vans at the uni?

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Sue, all the days are above. They’re on campus every weekday during semester.

    40. sue siallagan says:

      do you still have the markets on wednesdays? is it possible to sell my snow cones( shaved ice) & slushies there?

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Sue, yes, the markets are still on Wednesdays and we’ve passed your details onto the organisers who will email you directly.

    41. Lisa White says:

      Hi, Can I please have my details forwarded to the organiser of the food vans as I would like to bring to Park’d my authentic Hawaiian Shave Ice, Chillers (real fruit taste) and Soft Serve in flavours other than vanilla that is Lactose & Gluten FREE (real irresistible taste)! My van featured recently at the Alcohol Think Again. Perth Heat series (Championship 2014) in which I was a partner of the Perth Heat. Thank you.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Lisa, we’ve passed your details on. You should hear from them via email soon.

    42. Jeff says:

      I am very interested in being a part of this. Are you able to send me information please?
      Thank you.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Jeff, yes, you’ll be contacted via email.

    43. Don says:

      Hi,I am interested in being a part of this event,had just heard this from my friend,I had previous experiences in running food business in market.Could you pls send me more information.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Don, yes, we’ll be in touch via email.

    44. Jos Walsh says:

      I heard that The Merrywell now has a food truck. Lets get them here!

    45. Andrew says:

      Really interesting idea, would love to help add some more international flavors to the mix.

      Can you please forward on my details. Thank you very much!

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Andrew

        Yes, we’ve done that, and the Park’d guys will get back to you via email. Thanks for your interest.

    46. Julie says:

      Just wondering what has happened to the jumplings van?

    47. Rachael says:

      Can you please note next to the description of each above which (if any) of the vendors have EFTPOS facilities? Thanks

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Rachael, thanks for this suggestion! At this stage we’re aware that Higher Grounds, Hey Pesto and Comida do Sul offer EFTPOS facilities and we’ve noted this next to their descriptions.

    48. Penny says:

      i am so disappointed that there is no room for JUMPLINGS to return. They were some of the original food van holders who supported this venture. They always had lines of people waiting for their amazing food. What a loss.

      NO HAPPY

      • David says:

        Not happy either.

        Jumplings was the only Van I eat at. I tried others, but Jumplings was the best. They were always friendly and always busy.

        Please bring them back.

    49. Liz. says:


      Im interested in setting up shop with the other food vendors. Can you please contact me with details as to how to join and an costs involved and any other requirements.


      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Liz, thanks for your enquiry. Annette Hasluck will be in touch via email with the details for how to get involved.

    50. Nadi says:

      where is Jumpling?

    51. rob says:

      I was interested to see what the merrywell truck would be like seeing as they are a pub and the food looked good. What I didn’t like was the prominent Crown and CCA advertising. Park’d should be about supporting independent producers not lining Mr Packers pockets

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Rob, thanks for your comments. Through the Park’d food truck program, we hope to provide a diverse and high-quality food selection for the Curtin community. The Merrywell truck was accepted on the basis of their food offering and we noted that the Merrywell branding was the focus and far more prominent than Crown’s branding.

    52. vanessa says:

      Where are the “Markets”? Higher Grounds is there but I can’t see it on the map…
      Need a good coffee!

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Vanessa, the markets are between Buildings 106 and 108 :).

    53. Nicole says:

      Hi there, Can you please contact me in regards to the Merrywell Food Truck. Thanks

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Nicole, Hillary Lambert will be in touch with you via email.

    54. carla says:

      There are a few nice mexican vans around. can we also have a few more food options down at 216? waffles and happy choppy = no good for lunch.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Carla, thanks for your feedback. I’ll pass it on to the organisers.

    55. Nathan says:

      You should advertise the food vans more, you would be surprised the amount of people who dont know about them (especially 1st yrs).

      Maybe put posters up it would be a nice change from all the polticial stuff or email but i usually dont read the random emails.

      The more people who eat at them the more likely food vans will stay and not leave like jumplings (btw they went to uwa).

      I like the variety of food and its very affordable

      • Curtin University says:

        Thanks for your feedback Nathan. I’ll pass it on to the organisers.

    56. Jo M says:


    57. Anon says:

      Is the Merrywell truck coming back?? It hasnt been advertised as being on campus for a couple of weeks now.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi, the truck has been out of action for a couple of weeks. We’ll keep you posted :-)

    58. Velt says:

      When will Butty’s be back?

    59. Laura Richards says:

      Hi, I wanted to inquire about how to contact a few of the performers that were on campus for a private event.


    60. Lyndsey says:

      Great idea guys!! I work in community development and would love to do something like this in one of my communities. Could you please put me in touch with the organisers? Thanks!!

    61. Sarah Belgard says:

      Good afternoon,

      We have read with interest your Park’d Food Trucks at Curtin site. We would like to enquire as to how we may register our interest to become involved.

      Any further information you could provide would be gratefully received.

      Many thanks,

      Sarah & Nerida.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Sarah and Nerida, please fill out our enquiry form at:

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Jacqui, they used to have a stall at our weekly markets, but they can’t make it this semester :-(

    62. Kieren says:

      Hi there,
      Can you please provide me with more info about Park’d, specifically times, contract periods, costs, etc.
      I have a family member who could benefit from an on-campus presence.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Kieren, the organisers will be in contact via email with more info. – Emily

    63. Yappies says:

      I just tried a BMT (Banh Mi Thit) aka Vietnamese Pork Rolls… at Waterford Bakehouse in Waterford Plaza… OMG so yummm and they’re generous with the filling! I was speaking to the owner and he said he’ll look into providing free delivery to Curtin Campus if there’s enough demand! YAY!!!! that would be awesome! If you love BMT like I do please harass them to deliver!

    64. RKW says:

      Hi there,

      Wanting to get some general info on Park’d and how we might be able to set up a mobile food truck at Curtin one day if possible? Could you send some details over? :)


    65. carmen jacques says:

      we had some delicious Vietnamese Rolls at Sky Works – i believe they do the friday night hawkers market in the city – How about we get some of that this year?

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Carmen, do you know what the business was called? – Emily

        • Jane Fields says:

          Baguette Me Not – Vietnamese banh mi

    66. Jane Fields says:

      Shame we can’t get any vegetarian vendors here…

    67. Ruth says:

      When will the Cuban Sandwich Co be back on campus?

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Ruth, unfortunately they won’t be back on campus this semester. The business has changed ownership and we haven’t heard from them since. – Emily

    68. Kat says:

      Hi there,
      Could you please inform me of how I could get my food truck at Park’d?
      Thanks in advance!

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Kat, please fill out this form and you’ll be added to the database :-) – Emily

    69. Kevin says:


      I’m thinking about opening a stand in the food markets. Is there an information pack about how to go about this, costs and regulations?


      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Kevin, please email for further information. – Emily

    70. Hollie says:

      Can we please have an update on the description of providers to include all food vans

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Hollie, yes you can. Full list of vans coming soon :-) – Emily

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Holly, the list of vans has now been updated. Thanks for your patience. – Emily

    71. Rochelle says:

      Can you please promptly update the Park’d website?! in particular the numerous new food trucks descriptions and the new locations?
      It gets very frustrating not being able to find the food van you want or to not know what a food van delivers in choices without walking all over campus and taking up a whole lunch break to find out you don’t want it.

      • Curtin University says:

        Hi Rochelle, the new vans and their descriptions have been added to the list of vans and Atkinson Forum has been added to the locations map. Feel free to ask any questions you have about the vans in these comments or on the Park’d Facebook page. – Emily
