film location

filmDue to the stunning scenery and breath-taking locations, it is no surprise that New Zealand is the ideal country for filming. It’s best known films include The Lord of the Rings trilogy and King Kong by New Zealand’s very own Sir Peter Jackson. Seeing the ‘Hobbit-holes’ in the Hobbiton movie set is something you must not miss. And its a great way to make all of the Lord of the Rings fans back at home jealous with your pictures!


Many well-known films have been shot here in New Zealand, such as the wildely acclaimed Boy, Yogi Bear, the Lord of the Rings trilogy, and Hobbit and its sequel. Many tour companies take you to see the Lord of the Rings filming spots,but touring with us, the ‘Legends’, you will have a 2 hour experience like no other.


Though many of the Lord of the Rings set locations, such as any actual building or sets constructed for filming, have long gone, we are able to show you the Hobbiton Movie Set in Matamata. Known for its thoroughbred industry, dairy farming heritage and historic Firth Tower Museum, Matamata has it all.Since the filming of the Lord of the Rings and Hobbiton movies, Matamata has experienced a huge increase in tourist visitors wanting to see the location in which the multiple Oscar winning movies were filmed.
