There are two little islands, little bits of land sitting on the mudflats within the boundaries of the City of Tauranga. One is Motuopuhi, which the Pakeha call Rat Island, in the estuary of the Waimapu not far from Hairini. Motuopae, or Peach Island, sits in the Waikareao Estuary, not far from Judea Pa.
