Wendelton is a small village where the Eyebright guinea pigs live.
Amongst miniature houses and businesses they scamper about the verdant pastures of Wendelton. There’s a school, a castle, a beauty salon and the all important maternity unit.
The Eyebright Country store is well worth a stop with great gift ideas.
Since the launch of the Lord of the Rings movies and the subsequent opening of the Hobbiton Movie Set Tours, Matamata has become a vibrant visitor destination, attracting visitors from all over the world. The i-SITE office serves as the departure point for tours of the movie set as well as other regional activities.
