Travelling through inland Victoria we were all in need of a salty fix. As we were doing the miles through the Victorian flat lands towards the South Australian border we came across the “Pink Lake” a awesome phenomenon where pure salt makes up the base and surrounding of a lake that glows pink!! Its like bubble gum pink!! It was yet another unexpected gem to find along our never-ending travels through Australia.
We slushed out through the pink salt towards the water. It was like walking in snow. The water is ten times saltier than the ocean and the pink colour actually comes from an algae growth when the nutrients in the water are at a high level. It was warm, it felt like 28-30 degrees and you could feel minerals absorbing into your skin. This one was located between Nhill and Dimboola, but we have since found out there are some more impressive ones in the north-west of Victoria. Will have to check these out another time.
After the pink lake we drove into the Riverland of South Australia and spent a peaceful 5 days at Lake Bonney, where the tree sunset and sunrise photos in this post are from. We are now back on the South Coast of New South Wales and are amped to get back into some coastal photography.
