NZ$185 includes the entry fee into the Hobbiton Movie Set at Matamata. If you are a Lord of the Rings fan or a Hobbit fan this is a must do while in this area. Take a tour down into the Hobbiton village and hear how this movie set was developed and built. Be guided around the site where you will see Bilbo Baggins house, the gardens, the Lake and Party Tree and finish this two hour tour off with a complimentary ale, cider or ginger beer at the Green Dragon Inn.
The tour through the movie set takes two hours so you should allow at least 4-hours for the drive from Hamilton and the tour. There is a wonderful gift shop on site where you can purchase all manner of Lord of the Rings and Hobbit memorabilia (Minimum of 2 adult fares for this tour).
