A little photo of Wellington, showing where they started filming.
This is a link to an article on Wellington parks. There’s a photo which shows how amazingly close to the centre of the city the filming is taking place. In the photo you can see a few buildings below the people sitting in the park. Just past the city, in the right of the picture, is a dark forested hill. That is Mount Victoria, where the hobbits are currently. Click on this link to see it.Posted in Old Main News on October 11, 1999 by Tehanu
