Another Tourist Attraction that we visited in New Zealand is the Famous Weta Cave ~~ located in Wellington New Zealand.

It is the home of high-end sculptures, props, replicas and arts of famous and well-loved films such as Avatar and LOTR.

It’s a glimpse of film production of my favorite movie (The Lord of the Rings), that’s why I’m really interested to learn about this place. Here’s a sample frontage of the Hobbit House.

When you go inside the cave, there are different displays and designed shirts. There are also lots of memorabilia, artworks and sample props.

My favorite part of all are these Giant trolls displayed outside the Weta. They are the mere replicas of the Giant Trolls in the Lord of the Rings movie. I definitely had fun take photos with them!🥳😅
