Lindale is located in North Island

Lindale is a locality just north of the Paraparaumu town centre in New Zealand's Kapiti Coast district. Originally involving just a Tourist and Agricultural Centre, gaining a reputation for cheese and more recently Lindale Farm (petting farm) itself, it has since acquired a university campus and a convention centre.

State Highway 1 and the North Island Main Trunk railway both pass through Lindale. The railway line was formerly owned by the Wellington and Manawatu Railway Company, and construction of the line was completed when the ends from Wellington and Longburn (Palmerston North) met near Lindale in Otaihanga in 1886. There are proposals to extend the commuter train service, operated by Tranz Metro to a new station at Lindale, subject to Wellington Regional Council funding.
