The Hobbiton movie set of The Lord of the Rings is on the North Island of New Zealand near the town of Matamata. The remnants of the movie set are on picturesque private farmland with views across to the Kaimai Ranges. The Hobbiton movie set has been returned to its natural state, but hobbit holes and some structures from the film set are still present. Photo is by Claudio Wildhaber of Sydney.
