Alexander Farm just outside Matamata, a couple of hours drive south of Auckland became the movie set Hobbiton of the Shire, after being discovered by Peter Jackson in 1999. Six films later, the Alexander family is running a smooth business with full tours departing from The Shires Rest Café every 15 minutes throughout the day. Some hard-core fans have been known to break into the area and are found sleeping there, on the lawn, after having discovered that the hobbit houses are only shells with nothing inside.
