Jacksonland

As a lover of all things "themed" it's a shame there's nothing as exciting as Disneyland or Universal Studios here in New Zealand. Well, there's Rainbow's End ... but I must confess I have never even been there myself.

There's plenty of Hobbit related theming in the area of Matamata and there's the awesome looking Mellonsfolly Ranch (an Old West Town) that we need to visit one day and some pretty cool museums and such that have pretty good themed settings - but ... when I read the article in the Herald about  Peter Jackson putting millions of his own dollars into a plan to build a movie museum and convention centre that has been likened to Disneyland in Wellington - I was truely excited about the idea!. 


I can see us travelling to Wellington more often once this has been established. I do hope the council votes YES on the project ...
