Bush and Beach Hobbiton Express Tour
Duration: 8 hours
Let Bush and Beach take you on a magical journey through Middle-earth to the Hobbiton Movie Set from the Lord of the Rings film trilogy for a fascinating guided tour.
Travel south from Auckland over the Bombay Hills to the rich farmland of the Waikato region. You travel through the heritage town of Cambridge where tree-lined streets add to the English-style atmosphere. From here your journey takes you through undulating green hills reminding you that you are approaching Hobbiton Shire.
On arrival at Shire’s Rest you embark on your Hobbiton movie set tour. This location is the largest “green set” in the world and the only place where you get an emotional response with a movie set in a natural setting. You see 44 hobbit holes, the Mill and double arch bridge, the party tree and visit the Green Dragon Inn. At this stunning location you can take a photo at the door of Bilbo’s house, “Bag End”, looking out over the whole set to the hills in the distance.
After the tour your lunch is included at Shire’s Rest Café before heading back to Auckland before the traffic builds up on the Southern Motorway.
Group Size: 2-20 people
Includes: Hobbiton souvenir, lunch, hotel transfers, park entry fees, expert guide, educational experience and live commentary.
Departs: Daily 7:00am except Christmas Day
