Kinloch Living

Kinloch is a popular holiday place for locals and tourists to enjoy. Only a short 15 minute drive from the Taupo town centre, this charming community is the perfect picturesque spot for a lakeside picnic lunch, a dip in the fresh lake water, a spot of trout fishing or a meander around the pretty Kinloch Marina. Be sure to grab a coffee and a bite to eat from the popular local café, walking distance from the lake’s edge

Featuring as the link between the K2K and W2K sections of the Great Lake Mountain Bike Trail – one of the 18 great rides which make up Nga Haerenga – the New Zealand Cycle Trail network. Kinloch is also home to the prestigious Kinloch Club, overlooking the Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, ranked by Golf Digest Magazine amongst the Top 100 courses in the world outside the USA.
