An event at Hobbiton™ Movie Set is an experience to tantalize the senses of visitors, as guests find themselves engulfed in the sights, smells, sounds and tastes of The Shire™, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. Nestled in the rolling green hills of the Waikato, visitors are given the once in a lifetime opportunity to see an iconic movie set in its full glory; from wandering the rambling paths of the Shire, to seeing the submerged Hobbit Holes™ that litter the rolling hillsides.
Your tour starts with a drive through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges. Your personal guide will escort you through the twelve acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie set was created.
