Tour the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata, New Zealand
Just outside the small town of Matamata, you can visit the actual Hobbiton set featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit film trilogies. Get a sneak peek of this Tolkien fanatic’s paradise.
The Hobbit director Peter Jackson spotted Alexander Farm during an aerial search of the North Island, and he thought its rolling meadows and fantastic views made it a perfect spot to build the set of The Shire.
