Our Hobbiton tours start off in Matamata – a Kiwi town known for its thoroughbred farming, dairy farming heritage, historic Firth Tower Museum… and of course, the Hobbiton Movie Set.

Since the worldwide launch of the blockbuster ‘The Lord of the Rings’ trilogy, and the subsequent opening of the Hobbiton Movie Set Tours, Matamata has found itself transformed into a vibrant tourist destination, attracting visitors from all over the world.

Great Ocean Tours’ trips to Matamata allow for you to explore the small town and enjoy the blend of retro New Zealand shopping with modern cafes, before we whisk you off for your 2 hour Hobbiton Movie Set guided tour.

If you’re a fan of ‘The Lord of the Rings’ or even if you simply want to see NZ at its finest, treat yourself to a Hobbiton Move Set tour to discover the real Middle-Earth.

Once the tour of Hobbiton is concluded, we will take you to the Hunua Ranges – where you can bask in the beauty of the spectacular Hunua Falls. This 30m waterfall joins up to the Wairoa River, which winds its way through an ancient volcano, heading north up to Auckland’s beautiful Hauraki Gulf.

Then it’s time to make our way back up to Auckland, which includes moving to hamilton gardens before going back home. Last but not least dropping you off at your preferred place in Auckland’s city centre, leaving you with a small memento from Legends to remember your tour with.
