The 12-acre location sits within gentle rolling hills on a quiet country road near the farming town of Matamata. Hobbit holes aplenty, the Green Dragon Inn and the Party Tree make Hobbiton Movie Set truly deserving of the third place spot on the list. Photo by @shaun_jeffers for @hobbitontours.

Only a 15-minute drive from downtown Auckland, Takapuna Beach is a great place to cool off in under the summer sun. With the Takapuna shops just a stone’s throw away, taking a stroll along the beach with an ice cream always makes for a great photo op. Photo by @fotojorno.
Piha is a dramatic black sand beach just a 45-minute drive from downtown Auckland. Majestic Lion Rock stands guard over the wild coastline and its renowned surf break – a photo opportunity that can’t be missed which is why it sits at number seven on New Zealand’s top Instagram spots list.

Looking across Lake Wanaka toward the Southern Alps you can’t help but be in awe. The famous tree known as ‘That Wanaka Tree’ has been shared on social media so often that it has its very own hashtag (#ThatWanakaTree) which could give a hint as to why the Wanaka lakefront comes in at number eight.

The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, ninth on the list, is a must do for any visitor to Wellington. Showcasing a bicultural experience across five areas - art, history, Pacific, Māori and natural environment, Te Papa is a special place that delivers an unforgettable experience for all visitor ages.
