LOTR and NZ police drama location
Jul 2020 • Couples
Classic NZ one way bridge over a wide stretch of the shingle bed of the Dart River.

Not only the scene of the Isengard Lookout from LOTR but the titular location of the NZ police drama “One Lane Bridge”.

Worth a trip out from Glenorchy. Stunning scenery.

One of the most scenic LOTR location :) Easy to find- no need to take any tours. I bought lord of the rings movie set location book in DOC station in Queenstown and found directions there. Amazng scenery even if u re not a movie fan.

Beautiful

Brilliant lookout with spectacular nature & colours, especially enjoyable by people who have watched the lord of the rings and can relate to the place. The white gravel on the river bed is absolutely amazing and adds to the beauty of the scenery. A camera with a good zoom is a must. Allow about half an hour for the drive and visit from Glenorchy.

Amazing views!
Great to see where some iconic shots were filmed from Lord of the Rings.
We were a happy pair of nerds.

Nice easy drive out from Glenorchy and you can go down next to the river to get some good photos. Only one problem was the little bities. Not sure what they were but we got bit a few times. Might just be the time of year? Excellent viewing from here :)

Beautiful lookout

It's a beautiful lookout but be wary of the fence to the right of the bridge after you cross it. It's electrified with no visible signs mentioning it. We saw a portable fence electrifier that was humming and clicking.

Great if you’re a huge LOTR fan!

I personally wouldn’t drive all the way here just for this, but if you’re a huge LOTR fan you might, as this is the filming location for Isengaard, especially when it was drowned. This is as far as the roads go in Glenorchy, anything further will be gravel roads. I only came here because I had some time to kill before the sheep shearing show at the Glenorchy farm. I’ve seen some people take better photos than I did here. So maybe some of you can post them here!
