Dimboola - Pink Lake




Pink Lake is located about 7 kilometers west of Dimboola, next to the Western Highway. The lake can be easily viewed from the rest-stop beside the highway and you can also walk down the path to the edge of the lake.

The pink colour of the water comes from a pigment secreted by microscopic algae. The intensity of the pink varies with the amount of water in the lake. When the lake is drier more light is reflected from the white crystallized salt reducing the impact of the pink.

The salt was commercially harvested from the lake for many years and some of the relics from that time can still be seen near the edge of the lake.

Review:


Next to the car park are toilets, shelter with a table and a panoramic view point with unshaded table. A path which is about 100m long leads down to the shore of the lake where it is often possible to see the pink colour more clearly.
