Peter Jackson visits Queenstown
Posted on Friday, 13 April 2012
Hobbit fever has well and truely started in Queenstown and with names like Orlando Bloom dining in local cafes & riding the Gondola to go mountain biking, it's not hard to see why. But of course we were just as excited when the director joined us too!
Sir Peter Jackson is a bit of a kiwi icon due to his huge success with The Lord of the Rings and of course showcasing New Zealand to the world. And now with The Hobbit being shot in the region, Queenstown locals have the opportunity to go star spotting again.
People at Skyline Queenstown didn't have to search to far when Peter Jackson decided to bring some friends up for some good kiwi fun on the Gondola & Luge. It was fantastic to see him enjoying himself in between the ever busy filming schedules!
