Weta Cave is the shop and tours section of the award-winning Weta Workshop.

It’s primarily a Lord of the Rings souvenir shop, but there are many other fantastic offerings around the cave. Outside, visitors can take photos in front of a door made just for a hobbit and with life-size trolls from the film. 

Inside is filled with movie props and costume pieces from films such as Avatar and District 9. Weta Cave also hosts guided tours, which is 45 minutes of film creativity and Weta Workshop insight.

The guides and Weta Cave retail staff are passionate and relish at the opportunity to share their film knowledge with visitors.
