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.
Thirty-seven hobbit holes were originally built on the site in 1999 for the filming of The Lord of the Rings trilogy. The new, permanent set – rebuilt in 2011 for The Hobbit trilogy – features 44 hobbit holes.
