I’m a Lord of the Rings fan so this exceeded my expectations in every way. The plants, flowers, herbs and vegetables planted throughout made it feel so real. I loved the special touches like mauka wood chips burning inside the holes with chimneys so that...More

Hobbiton is approximately 2 hrs from Auckland CBD. The drive is absolutely fantastic with lush green grazing fields as far as the eyes can see, fringed by hills & blue skies with puffy clouds above you. After checking in, groups of approx. 20 guests are...More
