For The Explorers

pink lake horsham - vic

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.
