An aerial search in 1998 led Sir Peter Jackson’s team of location scouts to the Alexander farm, a stunning 1,250-acre sheep farm in the heart of the Waikato. They quickly realised that the Hobbits™ had found a home here, and the region featured in The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies.
Wander around the 12-acre set; past Hobbit Holes™, the Mill and into the world-famous Green Dragon™ Inn to view the intricate detailing, pointing out the most famous locations and explaining how the movie magic was made. Fall in love with the Alexander family sheep farm, just as acclaimed director Sir Peter Jackson did, as you journey through the unequivocal beauty of the land, with the mighty Kaimai Ranges towering in the distance.
