It is in the Waikato Region.Originally a sheep station, Kinloch later developed as a holiday destination with baches being built next to the lake. The town itself was laid out in 1962 by Prime Minister of New Zealand Keith Holyoake.Kinloch has a mixture of permanent residents and holiday makers. The lake is used for trout fishing, alongside water-skiing and wake boarding.
