I live in Wanaka (South Island of New Zealand). Two aircraft arrived with 43 people and a large amount of film equipment.
The crew are filming near a place called Tarras and this evening I drove out to look see. From Maori Point Road I could see a large marquee and associated tents in a small clearing amongst a large number of wilding pine trees.
The area is quite flat and very hard to see from the road.
No entry signs everywhere.
The place is signposted from Wanaka township with pink arrows and signs saying “Jamb”.
Will keep checking and let you know more.
-Great! All you South Islanders, keep those eyes open!
