Bid to get Rings river renamed for tourists

March 9, 2009 at 2:30 pm by xoanon  - 

Mt Doom over Mt Ruapehu? The Rohan Plains over the Canterbury ones? Rivendell over Upper Hutt? Lord of the Rings film sites have been drawing tourists for years, but now there is a bid to officially name one of them after its movie moniker. Fiordland motor camp operator Aaron Nicholson has written to the Geographic Board proposing a new name for a stretch of the Waiau River between Lakes Manapouri and Te Anau. The two-kilometre stretch doubled as the Anduin River in Fellowship of the Ring, with cast members floating downstream in elfin boats. Mr Nicholson wants the unnamed stretch to be called Anduin Reach. He has taken his quest online, drawing support from Rings fan websites and a YouTube video. “We’ve had comments from all over the world saying this is a good thing.” Bid to get Rings river renamed for tourists
