auckland to HOBBITON
Our journey begins from your accommodation at 7am from where we head south over the Bombay hills towards the movie set of Hobbiton, which is located in idyllic countryside just outside of the Waikato town of Matamata.
We stop for a comfort stop and refreshments at one of the small country towns along the way, and you are welcome to indulge in our home-baked on-board morning tea picnic (included), or select from the bakery selection of one of the local cafes (not included).
Your Hobbiton movie set tour departing from Shires rest is approximately 2 hours in duration and includes a fully guided tour and a visit to the Green Dragon Inn. We have time afterwards for a bite to eat and a spot of shopping at the Shires rest.
Option: The Hobbiton Lunch Combo Tour also includes a delicious Hobbit style buffet feast. See details for additional cost. Subject to availability.
The thermal wonderland of Rotorua is just an hours drive over the hill from the Hobbiton movie set. In Rotorua we visit a bubbling thermal field featuring an impressive regularly spouting geyser. View our iconic flightless bird, the kiwi, also in the kiwi conservation area within the thermal park. We have about an hour to peruse the delights of Rotorua before we hit the road for our return journey. Perhaps a Gondola ride to take in the Rotorua landscape, or a hot soak at the Polynesian spa.
Our return trip to Auckland is via rolling rural hills. Our excursion concludes at your accommodation around 7.30pm.
