What you need to know before your trail

Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power – the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins.

In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as the Ring is entrusted to his care. He must leave his home and make a perilous journey across the realms of Middle-earth to the Crack of Doom, deep inside the territories of the Dark Lord. There he must destroy the Ring forever and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose.

Travel Guide


The village where it all begins


The forested areas of Mount Victoria, within walking distance of the central city, were used to depict Hobbiton Woods, where the hobbits hid from the black riders.

Wellington’s Kaitoke Regional Park became Rivendell, where Frodo recovered from the knife attack.

Queen Elizabeth Park near Paraparaumu was used for filming the Nazgul and mumakil in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields.

Over the hills through the Wairarapa region next to the Putangirua Pinnacles, where Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli sought the Paths of the Dead.

Mount Sunday

This is a sheer-sided hill that was the set for Edoras, the main city of the Rohan people.

The set  no longer exists but true fans will see be able to feel and see it in their minds eye.
