Tasman's Great Taste Trail

 This easy cycling trail takes a leisurely tour of Tasman's most beautiful coastal and inland areas. Riders will pass vineyards, breweries, orchards and no end of places to stop and enjoy some quality cuisine. As a loop the trail is 174km long, but it can easily be broken down into bite sized portions just right for short morning rides and gentle afternoon cruises.

Tasman's Great Taste Trail is one of New Zealand's Great Rides.

Richmond to Mapua Ferry, Mapua Ferry : Rabbit Island and Mapua Ferry

Due to recent storms and windfall on Rabbit island, care is needed when traversing the 200m to/from the ferry landing. It is recommended that riders that are less confident walk for this part.
