Functions and 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

Think long lunches, smokey BBQ buffets, celebration dinners, cocktails and canapes…

Exclusive hire of the Black Ant Barn – NO VENUE HIRE FEE! – is available for more than 40 guests. We can cater for up to 118 guests banquet style and 200 for cocktail functions.

Menus are custom-made to suit our clients and their guests, taking into consideration any dietary requirements requested.

Black Ant Gourmet – owned and operated by Noosa Local , Jodie Willliams and her Black Ant team – has been very busy off-site catering and now offers a rustic barn at the Kin Kin General Store to accommodate client functions.

The Black Ant Barn saves time and money in venue hire as, well as all the hard work and stress of hosting an event at a private property. Our private alfresco area overlooks stunning rural views and is your private space for the afternoon or evening.

We do most of the styling with you adding the final touches, such as some colour to our white or off-white vintage themed decorations. All the hard work is done, just add a few of your own items to customise and personalise your special occasion.

Just 30 minutes’ drive from Noosa, Cooroy and Gympie, Black Ant  Barn is a great central meeting place where guests can soak up the relaxed country atmosphere while enjoying the company of friends, family and colleagues without compromising on a quality dining experience.

AirBnb accommodation, cabins, and camping with hot showers is available locally. Affordable bus transport packages is available for larger groups with pick-ups and drop offs to Noosa, Cooroy and Gympie regions.


There are several options to exchange your vows in Kin Kin, including at Broadcroft Garden, our quaint local church, or even on-site in our open space garden area.

A more exclusive venue option is available at our Mayan Farm in Kin Kin, where a venue hire fee allows you to have a private function and camping, toilet and shower facilities are available. There is an option for deluxe accommodation that will sleep up to four couples for those not wanting to experience the joys of camping.

Contact us to organise a meeting to discuss your ideal menu and we can provide a quote and pencil-in your preferred date.
