Australia and New Zealand – A Trip to the Shire

One of our most favorable stop on our recent trip to Australia and New Zealand was Rotorua. Here we board a bus and drove out to the set that served as the setting for “The Shire” home of the hobbits. This is one of the few areas where the sets used in the filming of the Lord of the Rings were left intact and now serve as a tourist destination. What a fun and fantastic setting it was. The degree of detail to make everything in the movie so real and believable was incredible. Here are some shots I would like to share with you.
