|We camped the night at Twelve Mile Delta, the closest Department of Conservation and cheapest camp site to Queenstown. What a great surprise it was to learn when we woke up that we had stumbled on our first positive sighting of a Lord of the Rings location. This was the location of Ithilien where Sam, Frodo and Smeagol catch rabbits and watch the battle with the Oliphants. We are confident of the Ring-ness as we could match the location with a picture in a guidebook. Ring solid.
