Visiting the Hobbits of Middle Earth in Hobbiton, New Zealand

Peter Jackson made New Zealand the 21st century version of Middle Earth, from the green rolling farmland hills of Waikato where the Hobbits live right down to the volcanic blackness of Mordor in the South Island. The sets are almost all gone, all except a little family farm, where you can mingle with the Hobbits in their natural habitat.
