The Weta Cave Workshop Tour is a movie based visitor experience in the heart of Miramar, Wellington.
A 45 minute guided tour starts and finishes in the famous Weta Cave and provides a unique behind-the-scenes glimpse into the workings of Weta Workshop.
The story of the creative process is told by members of the talented crew from the workshop floor using the props, models and weapons they helped make for the movies. They may even reveal some of the secrets behind the movie magic...
Through a number of windows opened into the heart of Weta Workshop, you can actually see the work being done inside one of the world’s leading concept design and physical effects manufacturing operations.
The Weta Cave Shop - a cavern of creativity in its own right - boasts a range of limited edition sculptures hand-crafted by the artists at Weta, unique Weta designed clothing, jewellery and books.
Every 20 minutes our exclusive behind-the-scenes film features interviews with Weta Workshop co-founders Peter Jackson, Richard Taylor, Tania Rodger and Jamie Selkirk.
Enjoy an exclusive insight into the creativity and imagination that goes into crafting the props and physical effects of Weta Workshop.
