The famous place in New Zealand where Sir Peter Jackson filmed his Hobbiton scenes for the movie trilogies Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. When I was 8 years old, living in Matamata, I heard The Hobbit on the radio and read the book soon after. I never imagined one day I would live half an hour away from Hobbiton!

These photos are from a family trip ten months ago. The Green Dragon Inn was a highlight.
