On rebuilding the old Lord of the Rings sets for shooting The Hobbit, New Line Cinema had them created in durable materials, and they remain behind fully dressed for the tours. It was a fascinating walk through the movie.
So we got a tour…
First, the visitor's center in Matamata.
Then the visitor's center at the site. We drove there, and took a bus onward.
The Green Dragon
Our route of travel that day. And the overall maps of the trip.
And as usual, more at the Flickr set.
