A motel owner's generous offer for food vans

MORE eatery options could be coming for Boyne Island residents in the form of a food van at an ocean-view garden.

Last night Boyne Island Motel and Villas owner Helen Grant took to Facebook to see if anyone would be interested in selling food on their premises.

The motel and villas are across the road from the Boyne River and boast a lovely garden area too, which Mrs Grant hopes can be utilised more.

She wants to see a food van or truck set up at the garden for their motel visitors and Boyne Tannum residents.

"It's such a beautiful area and it needs more exposure to get people to come and make the trip to Boyne Island and enjoy it for themselves," Mrs Grant said.

"We have a beautiful space anyone can come to enjoy," she said.

The vendor would need a council food licence and a working kitchen from a truck or van.

They can be set up on a concrete slab with power and water already available. 

The post attracted plenty of comments, with some people giving names of possible vendors too.

"Nothing has been decided yet, we are really just putting the feelers out to see if anyone is interested."

If you are interested, email reception@boyneislandmotel.com.
