Did you know that there is a shocking-pink lake, surrounded by green forests and white sandy beaches?
Amazing right?
Where do we need to travel to visit this lake? I’m packing right now….
It is indeed Australia.
And this one was Lake Hillier. But did you know there are more than 10 pink lakes in Australia?
Firstly, it has to be a salt lake. During the hot weather, the algae in the water mixes with the salts to turn the lake pink. It’s as simple as that.
Most pink lakes don’t stay pink permanently, they change colour all the time mostly from a lilac to a bright bubble-gum pink colour throughout the day and in certain times of the year.
If you’re wondering whether you can swim in a pink lake, there’s no reason why you can’t but most pink lakes in Australia are off limits as the locals are trying to protect them. If you find a pink lake you can swim in, make sure you don’t have any open wounds as they’ll be seeing a lot of salt in them once you take a dip.
