Description

A fantastical world of wonder awaits at the filming site of Hobbiton™ Shire. Nestled within the verdant farmland south of Auckland, this authentic recreation of Bilbo Baggins' Middle Earth village immerses you in all the magic and adventure of the Lord of the Rings.

Ride over the rolling Bombay Hills, through the sprawling Waikato region and past the heritage town of Cambridge, travelling not just south from Auckland but deep into the pages of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved Lord of the Rings trilogy. As you enter the 12-acre (5 ha) farm that was transformed into Hobbiton for the filming of Peter Jackson's blockbuster trilogy, the undulating, emerald landscape begins to reveal its secrets. More than 40 hobbit homes are tucked beneath burrow-like bumps in the grassy plain, including Bilbo Baggins' round-doored abode – Bag End.

Join a passionate guide for a 2-hour tour of this enchanting set. Hear entertaining behind-the-scenes stories about the actors and films as you cross over the idyllic lake on the double arch bridge, watch the waterwheel spin at the Mill and stand beneath the willowy Party Tree, where Bilbo celebrated his farewell birthday party.

After your tour, pull up a chair at the Green Dragon Inn and refresh with a cool pint of ale, cider or ginger beer from the farm's own Southfarthing™ line of brews. With your appetite whetted, head over to the Shires™ Rest Café for a delicious lunch. Pop into the Shire Shop to check out the collectibles, woollen wares, souvenirs and Tolkien books on offer before you leave Middle Earth behind.

If you are Tolkien fan you will not be disappointed. And the hobbit brews are all great. A must just for the side stories alone. Beach & Bush tour goes early to beat larger crowds in. afternoon,. Bus stops about halfway for your caffeine charge and snacks

The tour was small, intimate, and Alexander was a great tour guide. Bring your appetite for the yummy buffet lunch and your camera in order to take lots of awesome pictures.
