With food trucks Mr Burger, Sparrow’s Philly Cheese Steaks, Nuggies and the vegan food truck Working Amazing all set to appear tomorrow, it’s going to be interesting to see the various unique spins on the famous nug. There’ll also be a suitably large array of dipping sauces to indulge in.

From food trucks to festivals, Welcome to Thornbury can and does provide it all. It’s a bastion of the northside, and there isn’t a hell of a lot that the self-advertised “probably the best beer garden in Melbourne” doesn’t provide, making it no empty boast.

It is a must stop on any travel through the area and you are guaranteed to find a crowd of people and something happening when you walk through the gates to the plus sized beer garden and beyond.
