This is Queenstown. What are we doing here? Lets go and see. We will be taking a ride through the rolling hills through the mountains and different sceneries. to see where they filmed…. LORD OF THE RINGS! This is Kawarau. That is the bridge where I bungee jumped before. See these columns, thats where the boats went through in the movie. When filming, they added special effects to make it look more grander and majestic. The water is so clear, its beautiful. We’re looking for GOLD!! We’re going to do some digging and see if we find any gold! We just finished checking, unfortunately – no gold! Darn! That’s okay, lets go explore somewhere else! That part where the elves are canoeing and they see the bad guys coming on the horses They used their power to unleash the water on them to chase them away. This river is where they filmed that scene.
