Film in New Zealand

New Zealand’s popularity as an international film making destination means movie buffs are spoiled for choice when it comes to real film locations to visit

So I thought in this blog I would give you an overview of just some of the stunning locations where international films have been filmed in New Zealand.

Hobbiton Movie Set – The Lord of The Rings & The Hobbit

Hobbiton Movie Set – in the lush rural Waikato region – continues to attract international visitors looking to experience their own slice of Middle‑earth™ in New Zealand. This set was used for filming Lord of The Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.

A tour starts with a drive through a picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges in the North Island of New Zealand

Take a look at Bag End, where Frodo and Bilbo’s adventures began. Get lost among the hobbit holes and visit the Green Dragon Inn, the mill and the Party Tree. Listen to spell-binding tales of how Hobbiton came to be.
