9 Ways to Kin Kin & Cooran

1. Find Some Goodies at Kin Kin Depot

A sea of homely delights awaits behind the whimsical exterior of the petite weatherboard cottage that is home to Kin Kin Depot. Perched on the side of the Kin Kin main street, locally made candles and potions sit alongside country-style homewares and delicate jewels in this vibrant hinterland store.

2. Relax at Mayan Villas

Don’t miss experiencing one of the best eco-luxe stay options in the entire region – Mayan Luxury Villas. Hand built with rammed earth from the property, the villas are finished with recycled railway sleepers and reclaimed timber, with an outdoor tub, circular plunge pool and a fire pit to enjoy under the stars, resulting in a secluded, thoughtful three-bedroom retreat from the world.

3. Indulge at Kin Kin General Store & Black Ant

A true paddock-to-plate experience is guaranteed at Black Ant Gourmet at Kin Kin General Store, where long-time local Jodie and her team dish up sustainably grown meals with country vistas, while the general store stocks locally-grown produce.

4. Discover the Kin Kin Art Fair

This newly-created art fair takes place on various weekends throughout the year, and supports local hinterland artists and producers, who create and exhibit their work during the fair.

5. Kick Back at The Kin Kin Hotel

Once a local country pub in the truest sense, the Kin Kin Hotel is undergoing extensive restoration work, but still maintains the friendly hospitality and unfussy style that it was famous for. In place of the traditional pub fare, expect woodfired pizza and updated classics, with a grassy outdoor beer garden making the most of the expansive outdoor space.

6. Discover the Farmgates (Eastwell farms)

Kin Kin is home to a burgeoning farming and produce scene, and you’ll find farmgates dotted throughout the rolling hills of the region, selling fresh and locally grown produce from the source. Head to Eastwell Farms, a third-generation farm practicing regenerative farming techniques in the growing of their gourmet mushrooms and grass-fed beef.

7. Unwind at Avalon Farm Cottages

Set on 30 acres of rolling green farmland, Avalon Country Cottages offer boutique B&B style cottage accommodation in the tiny enclave of Pinbarren, just outside of Kin Kin.

8. Start your Day with Noosa Black Coffee

The rich, fertile soils of the Noosa Hinterland have become the home of Noosa’s first commercial coffee grower, Noosa Black Coffee, which sits amongst a series of farmgates on the outskirts of Kin Kin.

9. Hike the Noosa Trail Network

Snaking through farmlands and forestry throughout the Noosa Hinterland is a little-known series of tracks and trails known as the Noosa Trail Network. Many of the trails wind through the town of Kin Kin, making it an ideal base to explore the trails (best done by bike, horseback or on foot.)
