Pink lakes in Australia

From the air, this lake looks bright pink. The lake is about 600 meters long, and is surrounded by sandbanks and thick forests full of paperbark and eucalyptus trees. The narrow area of ​​the dune covered with plants separates it from the blue Southern Ocean.

Scientists suspect the color comes from dyes produced by bacteria that live in layers of salt crust. The color of the water changes when the salt level becomes higher than usual. In addition, high temperatures, sunlight, and lack of rainfall contribute to changes in the color of lake water.

In this condition, algae that grow in the crust of lake salt produce red pigments, called beta carotene, as part of their photosynthesis process. As a result, a spectacular pink lake.

There are lots of things to see and do around Esperance, including horse riding, walking, cycling, fishing, scuba diving, whale watching - between May and October ---, windsurfing, down the cliffs, kayaking, and joining a 4WD tour .

Meanwhile, the Pink Lake near Esperance is another pink lake stretching against the backdrop of some of Australia's most stunning coastal scenery, seven kilometers from the city of Esperance.

With the right weather conditions, the lake turns pale pink because of the thick algae in the water. For the best and most enchanting scenery, walk to the reconnaissance of the Pink Lake. This lake has been declared by BirdLife International as an Important Bird Area (IBA) for supporting a large number of native birds and migrations.

Other pink lakes are located in Melbourne, Australia, which is now the main destination for young people who want to exist on Instagram. They don't want to be left behind to upload the beauty of lake water which turns into a "pink" color on social media.

Located in a part of Melbourne's industrial area, motorists passing through West Gate Brigde usually stop for a moment to see the lake closer. Although algae is not harmful to wildlife, the authorities warn that visitors do not come into contact with the water.

Park authorities in Victoria ask people who want to take photos to stay away from the shores of the lake. The ban is to protect vegetation around the lake so visitors must comply with all warnings. In addition, very salty water can cause irritation to the skin.

The pink phenomenon at Westgate Park can occur elsewhere in Australia and even throughout the world. In the remote northwest of Victoria lakes, Crosbie, Becking, Kenyon, and Hardy in Murray Sunset National Park are popular tourist spots because of their pink color. (WS.IN/UN/ENG/*)
