Paddock to plate
“Do your little bit of good where you are; it’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.” – Archbishop Desmond Tutu
Sustainability is all the buzz right now but for us, it is more than a trendy fad. It forms the core of everything Barns Lane Farm represents. It is our environment, our community, our children - our future.
Our vision is to create a tourist attraction and a spot for locals on the Sunshine Coast that has something for everyone… and it does…
Join us on our journey as we create a unique Sunshine Coast tourism attraction and special meeting place that connects sun, surf and sand with our world-class hinterland producers.
At the centre of Barns Lane Farm is our Dining Precinct offering an authentic paddock-to-plate experience, brewery and gin distillery. It features three distinct dining options including ground-level restaurants with external decks overlooking The Green towards the stage and Mt Coolum. As well as a broody underground Cellar peeking up into the orchid - perfect for sipping whiskey.
With stylised gardens and rustic hall, and access to delicious and nutritious local food, Barns Lane Farm is a stunning location for any event.
Our Function Hall will offer extended options for large events and weddings with initial catering being run through the on-site restaurants.
Our core offering is our authentic paddock-to-plate experience, with seasonal produce grown across our 30,000m2 of farmland served via our on-site restaurants and sold through the Produce Hall.
Designed with families in mind, our attractions and activities include an architecturally designed adventure playground, animal petting and daily feeding, animal husbandry classes and farm tours!
We are committed to providing families with a safe, happy and educational place to bring their children while also catering for parents, too! Also on offer will be birthday parties, school holiday programs and workshops at affordable rates.
The nursery is a prominent feature. Set in an architecturally designed greenhouse, the nursery is a prominent feature of Barns Lane Farm. Offering a diverse range of ornamental and productive plants, this area has been inspired by the paddock-to-plate experience that is Barns Lane Farm, Coolum Beach.
Visitors can take home their own seedlings or established fruit trees to start their own productive landscape. There will also be a dedicated space for classes and workshops.

Barns Lane Farm has been designed for local Sunshine Coast artists to share their creativity, passion and talent in a relaxed and informal setting.
From our local artist program, the cocktail bar in the orchard for intimate gigs, to large concerts and events, we will showcase the best local art and music.
Our bandstand is visible to customers in the Dining Precinct as well as those soaking up the vibes on the lawn with takeaway from our vendors.
Education is at the heart of our mission. Working with various on-site operators, we’ll host a range of educational experiences for locals and visitors.
From learning how to grow fruit and vegetables in gardens and orchards, pottery and art lessons in the artist studio, to wine, gin and beer making classes - there's something for all!
We’re also actively working with local schools to provide real-world opportunities for students to grow into sustainably-conscious adults.
