The region around Wanaka and Queenstown was a real treasure chest for Peter Jackson. A lot of scenes were shot here.
Before moving further down, we checked out one more location near Wanaka. When you leave Wanaka for Glendhu Bay and follow the road markings for Treble Cone Sky Field you can see some rough country on the side of the road. This rough country was used to portray the fellowship's progress after they left Rivendell.
This one particular hill below instantly came back to our mind from the movie when browsing through the landscape.
