The City actively supports mobile trading to help sustain and grow local businesses to benefit the local community.
Before trading, mobile food businesses must be registered with the City of Karratha, or with any other local authority in WA. In addition to the registration, mobile food traders must also obtain a permit to trade in a public place.
Once your business has a permit, there are 15 potential locations across the City of Karratha for your business to trade from.
