Hobbiton Tours & Farm Tours

Experience the real Middle-earth with a visit to the Hobbiton Movie Set, the bucolic setting for The Shire that featured in the Peter Jackson directed films, The Lord of the Rings. The set has now been permanently rebuilt for the The Hobbit films to be released in 2012 and 2013.

The tour starts with a drive through the picturesque 1,250 acre sheep farm with spectacular views across to the Kaimai Ranges. Your guide will escort you through the ten acre site recounting fascinating details of how the Hobbiton Movie Set was created.

Hobbit holes, The Green Dragon Inn, The Mill and other structures can be viewed and you will see how this beautiful piece of Waikato farmland was transformed into The Shire from Middle-earth.

Upon completion of the tour you will return to The Shires Rest Cafe.

Tours operate daily from The Shires Rest Café, Matamata i-SITE and Rotorua.
