In the heart of New Zealand, you can step into the lush pastures of the Shire™ with a guided tour of Hobbiton™, as featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit Trilogies. Experience Hobbiton Movie Set at dusk with a guided tour of the Shire and a banquet feast fit for a Hobbit. In 2009, Sir Peter Jackson returned to film The Hobbit trilogy, and he left behind the beautiful movie set you’ll see today; 44 permanently reconstructed Hobbit Holes, in the same fantastic detail seen in the movies. In 2012 The Green Dragon™ Inn was opened as the finale to the journey. Guests now finish their Hobbiton Movie Set experience with a refreshing beverage from the Hobbit™ Southfarthing™ Range. There’s an abundance of movie magic nestled inside the fully operational farm. Bookings essential. Hobbiton Movie Set is only accessible via guided tour.

Explore an enchanting world of secret gardens at Waikato's most visited tourist destination. The international award-winning Hamilton Gardens is unique; it tells "the story of gardens". Hamilton Gardens is not a botanical garden. Instead, its concept acknowledges there is a story to tell about gardens, their development over time and across cultures, and their use. The concept has been compared to a museum, where each garden collection has historic integrity and provides a window into the story of civilisations, their arts, beliefs and lifestyles. Beautiful bird's eye view of Hamilton Gardens
