It’s an area well known for its art scene and great food and the drive there will give you a feel for the wonderful scenery surrounding the area. Kin Kin is an aboriginal word referring to a small black ant that was common in the area. So common they named it twice!
Kin Kin began its days as a timber town and was famous because of its much sought after cedars and eucalypts. In later years it became a perfect area for dairy farming.
Nowadays many artists reside in the area including an artist who makes all his pieces from recycled metals. Kin Kin is also an area that has become synonymous with health and wellbeing with a well known health retreat and a massage school calling the area home. Kin Kin tea (a herbal drop) is also produced in the region.
