Bathing at the White Terrace

Bathing at the White Terrace

Before being destroyed or submerged by the eruption of Mt Tarawera in 1886, the Pink and White Terraces at Rotomahana were a spectacular tourist attraction. The terraces had natural silica basins in which people could bathe. By the 1880s visiting the Terraces was the highlight of a trip to the Antipodes.
