Kirks is a soft drink manufacturer founded in Queensland, Australia in 1865, popular for their range of flavours including lemonade, creaming soda, and sarsaparilla. Currently, Kirks is owned, manufactured, and distributed by Coca-Cola Amatil.[1]

For a period of time there was no unified Kirks brand, rather each state was represented by its own local bottler who had been acquired by Coca-Cola Amatil, these were Kirks, Shelley's, Halls, Gest, and Marchents.[2] Each bottler produced the same range of drinks, also sharing packaging and marketing material. Eventually the brands would be merged, taking the name of the Queensland bottler. In 2006, Kirks' packaging and advertising materials were redesigned, and again in 2014.

Kirks produces a wide selection of soft drink flavours available throughout Australia. In 2014, Kirks launched a new line of limited edition original flavours, "Kirks Surprises". From the Surprises range, Watermelonade and Enchanted Fruits were produced in collaboration with Chupa Chups.
