Crag features
Kinloch is on the shores of Whangamata Bay on the Northern side of Lake Taupo, about 15 minutes drive from Taupo. There are 4 separate crags in the Kinloch area. The first is in Kinloch itself, at the eastern end of the bay. The other 3 are on the same eastern peninsula but further out in the bay and can be accessed via the W2K mountain bike track or by boat.

From Taupo head north across the Waikato river then at the top of the hill turn left down Poihipi Rd. After about 10 km turn left onto Whangamata road, then left again onto Kinloch Road.
