Overview

The Hobbiton Movie Set is reopening on Saturday, 30 May! Book your tour now!

The Hobbiton Movie Set Tour is an essential stop on the itinerary of all visitors to New Zealand that are travelling between Auckland and Rotorua, where you can experience the real Middle Earth. This tour offers an interesting and entertaining experience including the famous Hobbiton film set used by Peter Jackson in the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films. 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 bottle feed the pet lambs and visit the Shire Store. 

Walking

The tour spends about 1½ hours walking with stops. Total distance walked is about 1½ kms.

Wheel Chair Access at Hobbiton

There is a portion of the Hobbiton Movie Set Tour that is not wheelchair accessible. If you book at least 2 weeks in advance, we can offer you a complementary golf cart to take you around the set, so you can see everything.
