Free Groups Backpackers Families With Children Relaxation Off The Beaten Path

Spend some time in the peace and quiet. Fish, walk, or simply sit in picturesque surroundings.

Just 26 kilometres from Glenorchy, Kinloch is the perfect place to start one of New Zealand's great walks, or to enjoy the area and spend some time in the outdoors.

Situated halfway between the Routeburn Track and the Greenstone and Caples tracks, Kinloch is a good place to both start and end a walk.

Originally used as a staging point on the route to the West Coast, Kinloch also has its own attractions and keen anglers will enjoy the salmon and trout waiting to be caught in the bay, with the wharf providing a good fishing location in the summer.

The Department of Conservation campsite provides a good low cost option for people wanting to spend longer in Kinloch, while the lodge provides slightly more luxurious, but still reasonably priced accommodation as well as meals and coffee.

Staying at Kinloch Lodge as part of a tramping holiday comes with a host of benefits including free parking, baggage storage and a boot dryer. An outdoor hot tub will relax walkers before they set off or soothe aching muscles at the end of a tramp. The lodge also offers transport to and from the Routeburn Track.

Kinloch is a perfect place to recharge batteries and spend some quite time before embarking on a new adventure.
