This is a must do if you’re a Lord of the Rings fan!
Located in Upper Hutt, as part of Kaitoke Regional Park, look for the Rivendell signs on SH2, south of the Remutaka Range.
Bring food and water, there are some great walks in the area with suspension bridges and rivers (you can fish/eel here) along with the site of the Rivendell film set.
If you’re expecting elves and carved features, lower your expectations now. However the scenery is beautiful, and what is on site is quite cool. There is a replica elvish archway (perfect for photos) plus information on where things were set up during filming, along with a cool sign to help you figure out where you stand compared to the height of hobbits, dwarves, wizards, men and elves.
