At the Hobbiton Movie Set near Matamata. The famous Hobbit holes come in different sizes to make filming easier: Small holes are used for tall people to make them look bigger and bigger holes are used for Hobbits to make them look smaller. Apparently, Gandalf and the Hobbits are never shown in front of the same Hobbit hole so as not to compromise the ratio.
