The New Zealand Hobbits Are Back!

The New Zealand Hobbits Are Back!

With pre- production on The Hobbit which is the prequel to the Lord of the Rings movies, Matamata is in the limelight again, where the village of Hobbiton set was made.

Well now you can go and visit the site and follow in the paths of your Hollywood Icons, names such as director Peter Jackson, Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen), Frodo (Elijah Wood), Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm) and Sam (Sean Astin).

When Peter Jackson spotted the Alexander Farm during an aerial search of the North Island for the best possible locations to film The Lord of The Rings, the site commenced construction in 1999 to create the Hobbiton Movie Set

Thirty-seven hobbit holes were created made out of wood and polystyrene.

Now that all the film crew and movie stars have long gone it’s now your turn to re live the experience and loose yourself in the realm of The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings world.
