Additional Location Information

Dunalistair House is located within the gated community of The Kinloch Club, New Zealand's only Jack Nicklaus Signature Course and ranked #1 course in the country. The views and local countryside are incredible, with soft rolling hills, complemented by native New Zealand plantings and forest.

It is recommended to have a vehicle while staying at Dunalistair House to explore this diverse region. The village of Kinloch is a 2 minute drive and is a quaint holiday village surrounded by poplar trees. There is a full time population of 500 residents and in summer this swells to over 2500, with kids largely enjoying the beach and fresh water swimming in Lake Taupo, which is safe and fun ! (A pontoon is placed out by the main beach where kids congregate and spend hours diving in and out!)

The village is located on the northern shores of Lake Taupo, and has a stunning marina giving access to the finest fishing waters of the Western Bays of Lake Taupo. Also, with the recently completed W2K Track and Kawakawa Bay Track, there are some fantastic walking and world-class mountain biking. The Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course (that Dunalistair House is located beside), is also ranked a Top 100 in the world outside the US by Golf Digest Magazine.

Kinloch has a restaurant and a local store for day-to-day groceries.

Only 15 minutes drive from Dunalistair is Taupo town (pop. 20,000) offering fine dining, cafes and restaurants, as well as a number of boutique retail outlets. The lake itself is very swimmable in the summer and is popular as a stop-off for a few days being right in the central North Island on the main highway between Auckland and Wellington and Napier.

The air is fresh and clean, being at an altitude of 1400 feet, and the emphasis is on outdoor activities - the walking, kayaking, biking, fishing, golfing and white water rafting are most popular.

It is easy to stay a week in the region and leave plenty to do for a return trip !
