Wellington offers diverse film locations – all within an hour’s drive. From modern cityscape to lush rural landscapes, small towns and dramatic coastlines. Steel and glass office buildings tower over immaculately-restored heritage buildings, multi-coloured wooden houses perch precariously on deep-green hills. Not to mention a striking harbour and city skyline to rival Sydney or San Francisco. Wellington has it all!
The filming of King Kong saw 1930s New York brought to life in Hutt City. While Wellington’s Mount Victoria, a few minutes from the CBD, hosted key scenes from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
