I vividly remember reading the Hobbit when I was about 12 and noticing the similarities to the landscape around me and Tolkien's descriptions of parts of Middle Earth. To be honest I felt kind of ripped off when Morrinsville was chosen as the location of Hobbiton for the LOTR series, as I thought Piopio and other locations in Te Waitomo were more suitable.


Thanks Craig, we're pretty partial to the limestone landscape of the King Country as well, so are happy about this decision. It will be interesting to see what is actually filmed!
