Oprah is stoked to be in New Zealand.

Oprah Winfrey says she's in love with New Zealand.

The TV queen is here filming Disney movie A Wrinkle in Time, and seems to be making the most of every opportunity to soak in New Zealand's landscapes.

In a photo taken recently in the Lake Hawea area and posted to her Instagram account, Winfrey looks out over rolling hills to the snow-capped mountains beyond.

Winfrey isn't the only star enjoying her time here.

Deric McCabe, the youngest of the Wrinkle's three child stars, plays child prodigy Charles Wallace Murray, main protagonist Meg's younger brother.

He's been making friends with some of the locals. In photos posted to his Instagram, he's seen making friends with the dogs, sheep and cows of Hunter Valley Station, where production is currently filming.

McCabe was treated to a classic Kiwi experience when he got to bottle-feed a calf.

His older co-star and on-screen sister Storm Reid is also impressed with high country station life.

A video on her Instagram shows her gushing over a flock of sheep being herded, while in another photo she says she's going to bring one back with her.
