Getting to Glenorchy Lake House, Kinloch Lodge and EcoScapes


There are a few ways to get to Glenorchy and Kinloch including buses from Queenstown, boat rides from Glenorchy and of course, your own car. Here's how:


By Vehicle

Glenorchy is a 48 kilometre scenic drive from Queenstown.  Glenorchy Lake House and Trading Post are on the corner of Mull and Jetty streets on the Lake front in Glenorchy.  Allow 45 minutes driving time from Queenstown. Kinloch is 26 kilometres drive from Glenorchy.  The road is sealed all the way to the Dart Bridge 17 km and the last 9 km is unsealed though well graded for a normal car or van.  If you would prefer not to drive all the way to Kinloch, you can leave your vehicle at the carpark by the marina and take the boat to Kinloch.  We would always recommend bringing your vehicle if you have one.
