Timeless hospitality in Glenorchy since 1868

At the head of Lake Wakatipu, you'll find Kinloch Lodge, a remote wilderness outpost just over an hour from Queenstown in New Zealand's South Island. Established in 1868, we now offer four unique accommodation options from our historic Kinloch lodge, our Wilderness upmarket backpacker accommodation, our Ecoscapes retreats in Kinloch and our Glenorchy Lakehouse.
