While we were driving down country to visit family, I stopped to take a photo of the Matamata i-site. The information center on the main street is a clear indication of where you are, in prime middle earth territory.
Middle Earth is the fictional setting of the author J.R.R Tolkien and his fantasy writings of the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
The Hobbiton movie set is just down the road, located on the most picturesque rolling hills, on private farmland.
If you are a fan of Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit you can take a guided tour around the movie set and see where it all happened.
Almost the weekend! hope you have a happy one
