Overview

After leaving Rotorua your coach will take you across the scenic Mamaku Ranges and through the native Fitzgerald Glade before arriving in the Waikato region and the rolling hills of "The Shire".

Your tour commences with a picturesque drive through a 1,250 acre working sheep farm, with 13,000 sheep and 300 beef cattle, and spectacular views of the Kaimai Ranges.

On arrival your tour guide will escort you through the 10 acre site, with fascinating stories of how the Hobbiton Movie Set was created. The Hobbit holes, Green Dragon Inn, Mill and other structures created for The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit films 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 your tour of the set you will return to The Shires Rest, with time to visit the Shire Store, before returning to Rotorua.
