Functions & catering

Black Ant Barn is a unique alfresco dining area with farm and rural views perfect for weddings, birthdays and corporate events


Black Ant Barn – a unique and relaxed venue

The Black Ant Barn is available exclusively for functions of more than 40 guests.

We can cater for up to 120 guests banquet style and 200 for cocktail functions.

There is no venue charge and Black Ant Gourmet Catering will fulfill all of your food and beverage requirements on-site. 

Menus take into account seasonal produce and dietary requirements.

Black Ant Gourmet – owned and operated by Noosa local, Jodie Willliams and her Black Ant team – decided to expand their very busy off-site catering service to also include on-site catering at the Black Ant Barn at the Kin Kin General Store.

Just 30 minutes’ drive from Noosa, Cooroy and Gympie, the Black Ant Barn function space is perfect for guests who want soak-up the relaxed country atmosphere, while enjoying the company of friends, family and colleagues over a quality dining experience.

The alfresco undercover dining space overlooks stunning rural views and is your private space for the afternoon or evening. We have a neutral pallette of white and off-white vintage themes we provide in terms of styling, so you can add your final touches of colour and personalise.

Airbnb accommodation, cabins and camping with hot showers are available within walking distance. Affordable bus transport packages can be organised  for larger groups with pick-up and drop off to the Noosa, Cooroy and Gympie regions.

Mayan Luxe Villas

A smaller venue option for functions up to 20 guests is available at our Mayan Farm, Mayan Luxe Villas in Kin Kin.
