This took me a while to figure out. I searched online and found a bunch of people talking about how it was on a trail on Mt. Victoria but I never saw anything to indicate exactly how to get there. We used our GPS to navigate to “Hobbit Hideaway” and that got us pretty close, but we still didn’t know where to park or how far down the trail to go. So where exactly is the get off the road filming location? This post should clear all of that up.
First, get yourself to Wellington, New Zealand.
If you’re interested in doing some sight seeing, consider going to the Mt. Victoria lookout.
Second, park here:
At this bend in the road you’ll see plenty of space to park.
Third, where exactly is the get off the road filming location? Follow the trail.
Once you’ve parked in this location, you will see some sign posts. One will have a placard that says “Filming Location” and has an arrow pointing to a trail. Follow that.
