Middle Earth in New Zealand

With the last Hobbit movie in theatres recently, we came across quite a few Lord of the Rings/Hobbit things around New Zealand (and especially in Wellington). We also visited the Hobbiton movie set in Matamata where we got to check out some hobbit holes and have a pint by the fire at the Green Dragon.
