1-day tour to Hobbiton and Hamilton Gardens. Hobbiton is the world famous movie set where Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit were filmed! Come to discover the famous and hidden places where Frodo and  Bilbo’s adventures began! Hamilton Gardens is home of NZ first traditional Maori garden and a beautiful spot to enjoy the outdoors.


We depart from Albert Park on Wellesley St next to the Art Gallery in Auckland. Please don’t be late as other people will have to wait for you and we will have less time for the activities during the day.

The drive to Hobbiton will take two and a half hours. We’ll make a short stop along the way to stretch our legs. Upon arriving we have around 10 mins to use the toilets or buy some food/snacks.

The tour to the Hobbiton Movie Set and Farm departs from the information centre. Please don’t be late as the bus DOES NOT WAIT.

The Hobbiton Tour will take us to the famous location that has been the home for the film crew of The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit during the time of production. Enjoy!

After a long and informative tour, we’ll take our lunch around just outside the farm at the “Shire’s Rest” café. You have the option to bring your own food or buy from the café.

We then depart for Hamilton. One of Hamilton’s major attractions is the Hamilton Gardens, where we can spend some time enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Come for a walk, relax, or enjoy coffee and ice cream at the cafe by the lake. We will be back in Auckland around 7 pm where you will be dropped off by Britomart.
