Sinclair was born in Sydney, New South Wales, the son of a suburban accountant. He was educated at Knox Grammar School and at the University of Sydney, where he graduated in arts and law. He practised law in Sydney, but soon developed an interest in farming, and acquired a property near Tamworth in the New England region of northern New South Wales. In 1956, he married Margaret Tarrant, with whom he had three children. After the early death of his wife, in 1970, he married again, to former Miss Australia 1961, Rosemary Fenton, with whom he has one son. His eldest daughter, Fiona, is married to the former Australian politician Peter King.
