Tolkien’s epic trilogy finally reaches its spectacular conclusion with eye-popping battles and, maybe, one too may endings.

West of Christchurch, Mount Sunday is a rocky outcrop rising above a plain left when ancient glaciers carved out the Rangitata River valley. It was on Mount Sunday, on the Mount Potts Station, the city of ‘Edoras’ in the kingdom of ‘Rohan’ was built.

The Ben-Ohau Sheep Station, in the Mackenzie Basin, in the Southern Alps in the South Island of New Zealand, near Twizel in Canterbury, provided the ‘Pelennor Fields’, and the foothills of the ‘White Mountains’, for the climactic battle scenes.

Queen Elizabeth Park, MacKays Crossing between Paekakariki and Raumati South, was used to stage the more of the battle of ‘Pelennor Fields’, with the fallen oliphaunt.
