The Pink and White Terraces of Lake Rotomahana
On the 10th of June 1886, New Zealand lost the ‘eighth wonder’ of the world. A massive eruption at Mount Tarawera blasted The Pink and White Terraces of Lake Rotomahana into oblivion. These were the world’s largest silica towers and the South Pacific’s biggest 19th-century attraction. The Pink and White Terraces may have been lost forever, but the impression that it left on tourists at the time is well documented. This is but one of many attractions of yesteryear that can only be appreciated in the pages of history books.
