Residential Recording Studio
Is a residential recording studio in the heart of the Lockyer Valley.
Situated on a 140-year-old former dairy farm, it's the dream getaway studio.
The Barn is all about vibe.
Our rural setting and accommodation options help to provide a relaxed atmosphere where artists can truly focus on the music.
The Barn's unique tracking room provides 11m x 12m of vibe and beautifully natural acoustics, allowing musicians to track in the same room while still keeping plenty of isolation. There is also a 3m x 2.5m iso room, and an amp closet.
The Barn is located 1 hour from the centre of Brisbane and less than 2km to shops, cafes and a pub.
