Hobbiton™ Movie Set Tour

Experience the magic of Hobbiton™ Movie Set with one of our daily departure locations. 

The Hobbiton Green Dragon Inn

Join us and experience the real Middle-earth™ at the Hobbiton™ Movie Set, where, in the heart of the Waikato region, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™, as seen in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.

Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance. Your guide will then escort you around the set, showing the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made.

You will be fully guided around the 12 acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn, where you will be presented with a complimentary, exclusive Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ beverage to conclude your own Middle-earth™ adventure.

Please note: pre-booking your tour is essential. Our tours can sell-out well in advance so please pre-book to avoid disappointment. 

Marquee Festive Feast Lunch available in conjunction with selected Shire's Rest departures:

Experience the taste of the Shire™ with a delicious buffet lunch served in the Party Marquee. Lunch is served buffet style with shared table seating. Lunch will follow the tour and must be booked at time of tour booking.
