Movie Tourism

New Zealand is making a name for itself as a place to make great movies. As a result, films like ‘Whale Rider’ and ‘Lord of the Rings’ have created a new form of tourism for New Zealand - movie tourism - spawning books and specialized tour companies. Check out Jim Eagles recent article in The New Zealand Herald ‘Land of the Silver Screen ’ to find out the locations of many of New Zealand’s best films.

Tourism New Zealand’s website provides more information on visiting the film locations of Lord of the Rings, River Queen, The World's Fastest Indian, and The Chronicles of Narnia.
