I'm new to Orchard and am creating a new theme which I have created based on the TheThemeMachine theme, so my new theme is a child of this one.

I have been adding new Zones happily to my Child theme however I want to deactivate some of the Zones in the Parent theme, but I don't want to just edit the Theme.txt file in the parent theme and remove them from there unless I have to.

Is there any way I can disable Zones used in the Parent theme that I don't want available in the Child Theme?

I think editing theme.txt is your only option at this point. That or don't make your theme inherit of course.

Thanks for getting back to me, that's pretty much the conclusion I've come to as well so have stopped it inheriting from the ThemeMachine.
