There are quite a few Lord of the Rings filming locations around Queenstown area - so off we headed to see what we could see, geek time for Glenn. We went to an ancient beech forest (lothlorien in the films), then we drove down the lake (over the river Dart) passed Mount Earnslaw (opening scene of the two towers), stopped for a pie in Queenstown, then ...

Because of maintenance, we didn't get to visit the station itself. ...
