Historically, the heartbeat of every country town was its pub – but only a handful of grand old watering holes have survived to present day. Thankfully, the Country Life Hotel is one of them – and you’ll find it in the little village of Kin Kin, inland from Noosa on the Sunshine Coast. Kin Kin is a quaint rural community and a highlight of the Noosa Country Tourist Drive.

Apart from its classic pub, the town has a fantastic General Store and Post Office – serving up much more than milk and stamps. Kin Kin General Store has been transformed by chef, Jodie Williams, into a popular catering business and café/restaurant. Jodie champions fresh produce from local growers in her menu and on the shelves. Hello Honey is one of the regional producers featured – derived from native bush only and not sprayed crops.
