Hobbiton in Matamata has become a must-see destination since the release of the blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy, directed by New Zealander Sir Peter Jackson. Several areas in New Zealand were transformed into sets for The Lord Of The Rings movies. The Shire was one of the most famous. On this Day Tour, you will visit the Hobbiton Movie Set and experience where the magic was made!
Step into the fantastical movie set that framed the ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ Academy Award-winning movies. See the Hobbit holes of Bilbo and Frodo and have a drink at the Green Dragon Inn. Whether you’re a LOTR devotee or just have general interest this is a New Zealand must do.
This day tour has a magical twist! It departs in Auckland.
