New Zealand's Hobbiton

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Contributor FreD used a drone to give us an aerial view of one of the most famous spots in New Zealand.  Matamata is a small town in the state of Waikato on the country's North Island.  Matamata achieved world reknown as the closest town to a primary shooting location known as Hobbiton in the Lord of the Rings and later the Hobbit movie series. The area was "discovered" in the late 1990's via an aerial search during the pre-production phase of the Lord of the Rings series, one of the most lucrative franchises in cinematic history.
