      Moturoa Rabbit Island is the largest of a group of sandy islands lying in the Waimea Estuary at the head of Tasman Bay, 15 minutes drive from Richmond. Along its seaward side there is more than eight kilometres of safe sandy beach. This is the largest picnic area in the district.

      Much of the island is covered in pine plantations owned by the Tasman District Council. The Council has set aside a large area of land adjacent to the beach as a public reserve.

      Visitors to the island are asked to keep to the marked trails. Logging is in progress and trucks are in constant use. Please use caution, particularly at intersections.

      Conifer Park Mountain Bike Tracks lie to the west of the Rabbit Island picnic areas. Conifer Park has two kilometres of single track suitable for riders of all abilities. At weekends tracks are open around the perimeter of the western half of the island.
