Trip Planner: South Pacific / New Zealand / North Island / Waikato Region / Hinuera / Hobbiton Movie Set
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. The journey across the 4.8 hectare (12 acre) set includes stops at Hobbit holes, the Mill, and the Dragon Inn, where you'll be able to enjoy a special beverage. 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. You can also arrange for a farmstay package, or organize a daytime, nighttime, or wedding function on site. Book your guided tour in advance, and explore the website for details about farmstays, functions, and events. Take the guesswork out of planning a Hinuera vacation by using our trip itinerary maker.

This was the most amazing tour we have ever been on! It was very organized from the start and all the staff were very knowledgeable. We came from Canada and took out two teens and all four of us thoroughly enjoyed it! The free beer/cider was a great hit! Absolutely worth it!
If you like the hobbit or Lord of the rings then this is the place for you. There are different tour options you can choose from with a guided tour, the staff are great, friendly and very knowledgeable. The Cafe is great with such nice food. The gift shop is super expensive though (to be expected). We had a fantastic time and will definitely be going back
