                        Things to do

                        While you're here, take a Hobbiton Movie Set Tour. These three-hour guided tours leave ten times daily, every day except Christmas Day, so you're just about guaranteed a spot. The Firth Tower Museum is another popular attraction in town. It was built in 1882 and the top of the tower offers some fantastic views of the countryside. The exhibits are fascinating and the museum's grounds themselves are really beautiful too. A few other scenic spots are the nearby Kaimai Ranges, the Opal Hot Springs and the Wairere Falls. If you're keen on bush walking, you can try the Centennial Drive Botanical Park Track or the Kaimai Summit 500-metre Loop Track.

                        If you want to pick up some local produce, head to the Matamata Country Markets, on the second Saturday of every month. For some locally produced cheese, visit the Kaimai Cheese Cafe, which produces specialty cheeses. You can watch the cheese being made, have a coffee or a meal in the cafe and then purchase some yummy cheeses to take home.
