Hobbiton Movie Set, Hinuera

Revisit Middle Earth at Hobbiton Movie Set, used extensively in both "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" film series. As your guide takes you around the Shire, you'll discover just how filmmaker Peter Jackson made his movie magic here.

Located in a scenic setting with the picturesque Kaimai Range in the distance, this attraction isn't just for die-hard Tolkien or movie fans.

  • What a wonderful and awesome experience this was! So worth the quick drive or flight from Auckland. Well done with tour guides telling stories and pointing out little things on the set. Beautiful area and even if you are not a hard core Lord of the Rings fan you will still enjoy it. So glad I went! 🙂🧝🏻‍♂️🧝🏻love Hobbiton!
  • It was my wife’s idea to visit Hobbiton whilst in Auckland, New Zealand for a conference. I was not exactly thrilled by the idea but we hired a car and drove the nearly 3 hours to Matamata (closest suburb to the set). It seemed expensive to me but the tour was absolutely fantastic. The location is unbelievable. It is some of the most beautiful countryside I’ve ever seen. The guide was great and the free beer at the hobbit tavern at the end was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Was very grateful my wife forced me to come along!! Only regret is I didn’t bring the kids. They would have loved it too.
