Itinerary

Day 1: Wellington Movie Tour

Walk in the footsteps of the cast and crew of “The Lord of the Rings” and learn how Peter Jackson and his team had the vision and talent to create amazing sets around New Zealand. Your guide will pick you up at one of our designated spots in the city from 2:15pm. As we travel, everyone will become acquainted with their fellow travellers. On location, our stories and picture folder will help bring those filming days to life while you also have the chance to explore. Learn what it was like for everyone involved in the filming of these classics! Departing the city centre, your guide will point out where the red carpet for two world premieres ran down to The Embassy Theatre. We head up to the trees of Mount Victoria and your first stop. After viewing our movie clips, we will take a walk through the woods and see where filming began for The Lord of the Rings including scenes like “Get off the road”, “Shortcut to mushrooms” and “Race to the ferry”. After our walk in the “Hobbiton Woods” we then head to the suburb of Miramar, home to New Zealand’s movie industry. While here, your guide will find the hidden production studios and talk about what happens inside these very secretive facilities. You will also learn the latest news from “Wellywood” as we continue to special effects company Weta Workshop and their Weta Cave. At the Weta Cave retail shop and museum, you will have the chance to pose for pictures with the life-sized trolls, William, Tom and Bert. Inside the shop, there are lots of movie memorabilia for sale and other props on display. You choose - do some souvenir shopping or just admire all their collection of props.
