Hinuera

Hinuera's claim to fame is Hobbiton, the setting for the shires in the "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" trilogies by New Zealand director Peter Jackson. The rolling green hills must have always been evocative and pleasant, but with the addition of the round windows and hobbit-sized doors, the area transforms into a magical place for fans of the films or the books on which they were based. Take a tour of the set by day or night, as either will impress. A place of nostalgia, innovation, and wit, Hinuera is Hobbiton, and Hobbiton is the shires.
