A hidden gem near the township of Matamata, the Hobbiton Movie Set is a world-famous film location of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit movies. See Hobbit Holes, stroll through the lush gardens and learn how this private farm became Middle Earth. Head towards the famous Waitomo Glow-worm Caves after a tasty lunch at The Green Dragon Inn, where the glow-worms await. A guided 45-minute tour will take you through this underground wonder. Learn about stalactites, stalagmites and other limestone structures that formed the caves 30 million years ago. Then, hop on a boat and sail softly through the Glow-worm Grotto as you gaze at the sparkling glow-worms in serene silence. Finish off the tour with a coach ride back to Auckland.
