Peter Jackson fell in love with the rolling hills of the Alexander Farm, transformed it into the Hobbiton, filmed the epic Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit in this utopian estate, and we can say the rest is history. Now whether you’re a fan of the book, the movie, or the last person who haven’t read or watched it, it is impossible not to see how captivating this place is. You might actually just pick up the book on your way home!
A 2-hour scenic drive from Auckland will take you to the Hobbiton Movie Set where you’ll find 44 unique hobbit-holes, the Green Dragon Inn, the famous party tree and cool insider stories about the filming of the movies.
The Bag end, home of Bilbo and Frodo. The party field where they held Bilbo Baggins’ farewell birthday party. The Green Dragon Inn is a local meeting place for the residents of Hobbiton, as featured in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Enjoy one complimentary drink just before the tour ends. The Southfarthing Range is made just for the Hobbiton Movie Set and you can only find these beers here: Amber Ale, Traditional English Ale, Apple Cider, and the non-alcoholic Ginger Beer. Absolutely perfect way to end the day!
