Kinloch is on the northwestern side of lake Taupo and approximately 15minutes drive from the Taupo township. It is a beautiful deep water bay known as Whangamata with great fishing and boating.

The lakeside resort of Kinloch has gradually been growing over the last 40 to 50 years. In 1953 an area of 5000 acres was purchased by a Keith Holyoake (later to be Sir Keith Holyoake, highly respected Prime Minister of New Zealand) and TN &.I Gibbs in partnership, initially for farming, but later for subdivision providing residential sections for housing and lakeside living.

Over the years the village of Kinloch has developed to now be a very sought after area of Taupo

There is a private Marina with public access on payment of a small fee and which is ideal for launching boats in any weather conditions. There is a General Store close by for all purchasers for the days boating and daily supplies. There is a restaurant "Tipsy Trout l" with a good a la carte menu - given time they will also cook the trout you caught in the morning.

The beach at Kinloch provides great swimming, walks, good fishing, water skiing, sailing, kayaking, tramping cycling. All activities are covered. The keen fly fisherman can do so at the end of the Whangamata stream, which enters the lake just a few 100 metres from the main Kinloch beach

 The Kinloch area has spread out over recent years taking in surrounding farmland which has been subdivided into larger rural blocks for those who prefer to live the country lifestyle yet be close to a world renowned playground.

The area can only but increase in popularity both from the local population and the tourism with the establishment of a new Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course. There is also a delightful nine-hole golf course at Kinloch.

And remember all the activities at Taupo Township are only a few minutes drive away.
