1. See & Do

Kin Kin General Store, home of Black Ant Gourmet

The lovely Noosa country town of Kin Kin is home to this restaurant, café and farm shop that is much more than a general store. Located along the Noosa Country Drive route, about 40 minutes from Noosa Heads, Kin Kin General Store, Home of Black Ant Gourmet, is the beating heart of this hinterland community.

Locals and visitors relax on the wraparound veranda of the rustic Kin Kin General Store as they dine on the exceptional menu from chef Jodie Williams and her team. Jodie champions ingredients that are locally and ethically farmed and sourced. You can taste this love for fresh local produce in everything on the menu, including some of the best coffee around!

On Friday nights, the aroma of wood-fired pizzas fills the Black Ant Barn behind the Kin Kin General Store, and on Sundays, the Barbecue Buffet brings locals and visitors to taste the range of food and breathe in the fresh country air.

Take home Jodie’s homemade treats if you are travelling throughout the hinterland or grab a Black Ant ready-made meal for dinner.

The Black Ant Barn, with its country styling, beers on tap and covered dining space, is also perfect for a rustic wedding, corporate event or family getaway.
