Visit the filming sets of the movies 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings'. The village is so beautiful and detailed that you might think the hobbits still live there. It's a wonderful village where it feels like the hobbits are opening their doors to greet you. Enjoy the fun of finding the mix of real and fake, visit the protagonist's house and the cafe that served as a backdrop in the movie, and experience the feeling of becoming a hobbit while sipping ginger beer. Hobbiton Movie Set tour lasts approximately 150 minutes. Known as one of New Zealand’s best natural attractions, take a boat ride through the glowworm grotto, marvel at thousands of magical glowworms and become part of over 130 years of cultural and natural history. Waitomo glowworm caves tour lasts approximately 60 minutes. Rather than focusing on plant collections, at Hamilton Gardens the emphasis is on different types of garden design. The collections of gardens at Hamilton Gardens explore the history, context and meaning of gardens. Each tells a story and offers an insight into a different civilisation. Hamilton Gardens tour lasts approximately 60 minutes.
