Hob­biton wel­comes neigh­bours

Matamata Chronicle - - News -

Mata­mata res­i­dents who pur­chased a Lo­cal Card and took ad­van­tage of at­tend­ing the Lo­cals Day at Hob­biton Movie Set and Farm Tours last Sun­day were not dis­ap­pointed.

Lo­cals Day was ini­ti­ated to give Mata­mata res­i­dents the chance to see what was go­ing on at the bot­tom of the hill on Buck­land Rd dur­ing the film­ing of both the Lord of the Rings tril­ogy and the Hob­bit movies. It was go­ing to take place in De­cem­ber last year but was post­poned due to bad weather.

This time con­di­tions could not have been more per­fect as hun­dreds of res­i­dents re­ceived a guided tour.

and went along armed with their cam­eras.
