About Matamata

Matamata is a small rural town located in the Waikato region. The town of Matamata is well known for its dairy farming heritage and its thoroughbred horse breeding.

Matamata is also home to the world-famous Hobbiton Movie Set, built on a private farm just outside the township. You can take a tour of the movie set and see where scenes from the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies were shot. Many of the sets are still in place so you can see Hobbit Holes, the Party Tree and other familiar sights. Book a bus tour to Hobbiton.
