Missed them all by a couple of days [In reply to] Can't Post

We were in Queenstown last week and went on a Rings Safari. Our guide took us to the location of Isengard which is just past The Hobbit set. We stopped to take a couple of pictures at the set gates (no one seemed to mind) then went on to Isengard. The road to the set is unpaved and pretty narrow passing through beech forest used in LOTR as Lothlorien. I'm not sure how they have managed to get the trucks along that road to the set construction. Glenorchy has a small airstrip and I guess the helicopters are landing there. The road from Queenstown to Glenorchy and then through Arcadia Station to the set is pretty narrow and windy and i wouldn't envy any of the cast or crew having to make that trip every day.

I have some photos but need to check size restrictions for this site before posting.
