Hobbiton – the Real Hobbit Village in Matamata, New Zealand


When Peter Jackson spotted the Alexander Farm during an aerial search of the North Island for the best possible locations to film The Lord of The Rings film trilogy, he immediately thought it was perfect for Hobbiton.


Site construction started in March 1999 and filming commenced in December that year, continuing for three months. The set was rebuilt in 2011 for the feature films “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug”, and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”.


It is now a permanent attraction complete with hobbit holes, gardens, bridge, Mill and The Green Dragon Inn.
