Overview

Take a stroll among the trees where “Hobbiton Woods” was filmed in New Zealand, including the location where the very first day of filming the Lord of the Rings wrapped up on October 11, 1999 on a Wellington Movie Tour with Weta Cave Workshop Tour.

You will be shown the site of the production studios and acquainted with what goes on inside. A major highlight of this tour is the 70-minute visit to the Weta Cave, the shop/museum set up by special effects company Weta Workshop where the many props and miniatures used in the films they have worked with over the years are on display. You might want to see their informative behind-the-scenes video, included in the standard tour, before buying souvenirs. A tour of the Weta Cave Workshop takes the place of the Weta video for those joining the Wellington Movie Tour Plus.

As there will be walking up and down bush tracks, it would be ideal for participants to have moderate to good level of physical fitness. Suitable footwear is also recommended as the tracks are slippery in places.

Please remember all original film sets no longer exist.
