A perfect outing for any child or fantasy-loving adult, this day trip will indulge your imagination and make you feel as though Bilbo Baggins is about to step out of his very small front door (which you’ll be able to visit, as well as other hobbit homes!). This trip is inclusive of a drink at the Green Dragon Inn, and a lunch at The Green Dragon marquee, both aimed to give you full immersion into your “Lord of the Rings” and hobbit experience.
Things to Know/Bring
Pack some car ride entertainment for the kids, as the 2.5-hour bus journey each way can get a bit boring (but the fantasy filled excursion is definitely worth it).
Buses depart at 7 a.m. from central Auckland hotels and return around 3 p.m.
