About Weta Workshop & Weta Cave

Weta Workshop is a five-time Academy Award-winning creative design and practical effects company that services the world’s creative industries.

In 2008, Weta Workshop co-founders Richard Taylor and Tania Rodger – seeing the vanloads of hopeful Lord of the Rings fans pull up outside the workshop each day – opened the Weta Cave shop. Full of cool stuff to explore, buy, photograph, or simply gawk at, the shop quickly became an iconic landmark in the sleepy suburb of Miramar.

Our Weta Workshop tour guides are storytellers first, tour guides second. Our mission is to take you on an epic journey through the imagination and creativity behind your favourite films. With all sorts of tools at our disposal: first-hand anecdotes, behind-the-scenes stories, movie effects secrets, tips, tricks, and more, each tour guide is unique, so too is every tour!
