Ok, so if you're not a fan of The Lord of the Rings then this probably won't be that interesting to you, but if you are then take a look.  Hobbiton (where the Hobbits lived, funnily enough!) features at the beginning of the first film and the end of the third.  It was filmed on a sheep farm near Matamata on NZ's north island.  It's a really nice place and was chosen because it had that old England feel about it (as that's where it's supposed to be in the books).  There's only part of the set left as a lot of it was only temporary, and the hobbit holes don't have any doors or windows any more, but it still looks pretty good.  I also got a sheep shearing demonstration and fed the lambs which was sweet!
