During the trip south you will encounter stunning scenery, great photo opportunities, beautiful mountains and several different farm animals along the way. Alexander Family Sheep Farm- After our drive we will arrive at the Alexander Family Sheep Farm and Shire's Rest, which is the entrance to Hobbiton. Here you can see thousands of sheep, grab a bite to eat, get your coffee fix or enjoy an ice cream while we collect your tickets to the Hobbiton movie set.
