Experience the dwarf barrel — Marburg Pelorus River
Pelorus River，located between northern part of South Island Blenheim and Nelson, is the viewfinder of the dwarf riding the cannikin to escape from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug“. The reason why the director Peter Jackson choose this place as the film viewfinder is that you can find Boulder rugged coastline here, surrounded by the forest around as well as the beach, which can be used for Barrels landing.
