Kinloch Wilderness Retreat is celebrating 20 years as of October 2020 and we’re super excited to share this with our fellow kiwis and the long term tourists lucky to be stuck here. Read all about our last 20 years here.

Kinloch is one of the most beautiful places in the world and we are super grateful to the people we have had the joy of meeting along the way as we grew into a family of 5 and a busy family business.

Kinloch has been the location of so many special occasions from special meetings, engagements, and weddings, to birthdays and being a final resting place for people that just loved Kinloch during their lifetimes. Being part of these special times and seeing the joy on people’s faces and when they discover the special qualities of Kinloch, working with some incredible people over the years.

With both a restaurant for dinner and breakfast and self-catering facilities if needed, there is a chance to relax and keep the small people happy on any budget.
