WHERE WAS THE LORD OF THE RINGS FILMED IN NEW ZEALAND?
As soon as you start leave the cities in New Zealand it is completely obvious that this is Middle-earth. Any of the rolling green hills could be The Shire. Then you are in for some spectacular Lord of the Rings scenery as you approach the grand mountains and forests in the South Island.
