Considered by some to be the "real" Middle Earth, New Zealand is home to the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit filming locations. Our spectacular scenery is the perfect back-drop to many filming locations requiring uninterrupted natural landscapes and temperate conditions, and it the backbone to our growing film industry. Whether you're a fan of the Lord of the Rings, or just interested in the art of videography, there's plenty to explore on both the North and South Islands.
Check out our blogs with some ideas of how you can get up close to Gollum and experience the country just as the movie stars did.
