Hobbiton welcomes neighbours
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.
