Jakob Overduin

Stars of The Highlands 2022

Owner - Hendriks Cognac & Wine

Introducing Jakob!
Owner of the funky and friendly bar ‘Hendriks’ in Mittagong – plus many other endeavours including CEO and Creative Director of ‘The Shed Agency’ PLUS … word on the street is that he is soon to be releasing a new fast-food chain across Australia!
Jakob certainly is a busy man, but in his spare time you’ll find him in race cars tearing up the tracks, however, soon he’ll be trading in those tyres for dance shoes, to tear up that dancefloor instead!

Jakob was really eager to get involved with Stars, and saw this as an opportunity to give back and help bring the community closer together.
Having lost loved ones to cancer, including close friends, his father and sadly, his mother-in-law and father-in-law in recent months, Jakob understands the significance of supporting a cause like the Cancer Council.


“I love the highlands and I love the community. Anything that brings the community closer is a great thing and if I can help others while doing this… then even better”

Best of luck Jakob!
