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.
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.
