Fernside is a tiny town on the eastern coast of central New Zealand, inhabited by just under 1500 residents. It was founded in 1901.

Today, Fernside is best known as the filming location for the movie set Lothlorien of the Lord of the Rings films. Though the set was dismantled, it remains a tourist destination. Mainly, the land consists of farmland.
