Pink Lake

Natural Attractions

Pink Lake near Esperance on Western Australia’s far southern coastline is a popular natural attraction.

Just a short drive from town, Pink Lake is a salt plain which unfortunately hasn’t been pink for over 10 years. The pink colour of the lake was due to the high concentration of salt tolerant algae which was washed away by flooding.

For the best view and excellent photographs, take a walk to Pink Lake lookout. An interpretive display explains why the lake hasn’t been pink for so long.

Esperance is an eight hour drive from Perth or you can fly there in around two hours.

If you were wanting to see a pink lake, Lake Hillier on Middle Island can be seen from a scenic flight, and is very pink.
