Let's be adventurous NZ.
Don't we have a body in NZ or the gov't itself interested in recovering the Pink and White Terraces, surely this would be in the interest of all NZ and the future of tourism. One would imagine the cost involved would be dwarfed by the huge tourism gain $ NZ would attract. Such wonders, are acts of God and belong to NZ, we should not permit their entombment to remain, they deserve to be seen and admired. Lets look at what would be involved in uncovering them and if a way forwards can be established, let's invite the world to view this wonder.

I suppose the "Pink and White Terraces" could be nice to look at if they were uncovered.
