    Stop At: Hobbiton Movie Set, 501 Buckland Road Matamata, Hinuera 3472 New Zealand

    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.

    Tour + Meal options 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. Your meal is served buffet style with shared table seating.

    You will need to go to the Hobbiton website and book your entry ticket and optional marquee lunch. This will cost extra. We recommend you do this first before booking our private chauffeur transport, this is because with an average of 2,000 visitors to Hobbiton per day, they can sell-out quickly.
