Kin Kin packs a lot into its small size. The pretty hills and valleys are home to farms that provide fresh seasonal produce to Noosa’s restaurants, and it’s home to Noosa’s first commercial coffee grower. Enjoy great coffee and delicious meals here. Visit a friendly country pub, and browse the shops for retro country treasures. Step out on the Noosa Trail Network, a series of tracks and trails over mixed terrain for walkers, and horse and mountain bike riders. The Kin Kin Creation Markets are on the first Sunday of each month.


The town is much loved for its casual charm, passionate local artists, health therapists, foodies and hobby farmers. The Kin Kin General Store stocks a huge variety of local produce including Kin Kin honey and tea, jam, meat, fruit and vegetables. You can even buy locally made eco-friendly soap and dishwashing detergent!


The word Kin Kin comes from the Indigenous word kauin kauin and refers to a species of black ant that is prevalent in the area. Keep your eyes out for the giant black ant statue in town!


The Country Life Hotel is a typical Aussie country pub where you can enjoy some good old country hospitality. A paddock-to-plate experience is guaranteed at the Black Ant Gourmet Cafe where long-time local Jodie and her team will look after you.
