没有二十一世纪踪迹的大草原 Hobbiton Movie Set & Farm Tours @ Matamata

玛塔玛塔,是我们离开奥克兰后第一个到达的城镇,是冲着‘魔戒’的拍摄地点慕名而来的。 星期六的下午这里显得很宁静舒适,最热闹的地方属麦当劳了。我们定了观光票后也到麦记凑热闹,看看餐牌和马来西亚的有什么不同(结果当然是有啦,哈哈哈。。。),然后就满心期待这两小时的探索。。。

Matamata was the first town we visited after we left Auckland for the adventure. We were here because of LOTR, this Saturday afternoon was very peaceful & nice, with the welcoming winds.... We booked the tickets at i-Site and heading to McDonald to check out the menu (coz normally they've got some stuff that M'sia doesn't sell :P).
游客咨询中心也以魔戒为主题呢
The i-Site also use 'LOTR' as main theme...
游客不多的好处就是可以在大街大巷不被骚扰和不阻碍别人的情况下搞自拍。。。哈哈哈。。
Less tourists means we can do this self photo snapping without being blocked/brought trouble to others...

这就是即将把我们载往五百英畝大草原的巴士。。。
Cool right? This is the bus that drove us to the 500 acre private farm where they build the hobbiton house at a corner of it...

Taken from: http://www.hobbitontours.com/
由于主办单位一二再再而三的提醒我们不能把照片放上网,所以很抱歉啦,不能和大家分享那一望无际的大大的草原,那小小的屋子(因为他们在拍前传,人家财宏势大,被告的话就呜呼哀栽了。。。)不过可以告诉你,如果你喜欢大自然,这里是值得来的。因为你真的看不见柏油路,也没有电灯柱,没有电缆,只有一片的绿。。。\
如果谁想看照片可以来找我喝茶。。。哈哈哈。。。
Well we were not allow to share out any of the photos taken from hobbiton farm site, since they are making the prequel of LOTR. Breach of rules will kena sue maximum and they won't be able to bring tours in as well. Personally I think it is worth to explore this place as you really see no sign of 21st century, no lamp posts, no paved road, no wire...only green...
Whoever wanna see those pictures gotto come find me yam cha lo :P

参观完毕后还有绵羊秀呢!
After the hobbiton farm tour there was this sheep shaving show!
看来这绵羊已经对表演习以为常了,表现的非常的合作和冷静。。。呵呵。。。
I think this sheep already 'immune' so he was pretty cooperative :P


这四只小家伙最可爱了。。。
These 4 little sheeps are the cutest!


怎样?我很可爱吧?
Am I not cute? :P

What yam char? On behalf of Hobbiton "You may have the right to remain sheepish and anything you snapped and captured on your camera can be and shall be held against you in the Hobbit court of law..unless you share with Bananaz then Hobbiton will let you go one horse"..~;).

Not allowed to share photos of Hobbiton? You guys signed NDA?

Casendra said...

Didn't sign NDA and don't plan to challenge the rich lo. Besides, the tour operation might get into trouble as well, so, don't wanna break other people's rice bowl as well :)

怎么人家可以把环境保护得这么美,我们这里没两年就完蛋了。。。。。小绵羊真的很可爱!

Casendra said...

墨鱼,在途中我们还看到‘keep us rural' 的大字牌呢!当时真的很感动,觉得自己不那么没希望,因为喜欢大自然和希望与大自然保持联系的大有人在。。。
