Pink Lake, Western Australia

Western Australia is a state occupying the entire western third of the Australian continent.
Perth is the capital and largest city of the Australian state of Western Australia.

Esperance is famous for its pristine beaches, spectacular coastal scenery and its unique Pink Lake.

Pink Lake just out of Esperance is pink, and sometimes even purple, depending on weather conditions. In fact depending what time of the day you visit the Lake, and the current water and salinity levels, the pink has been known to change from brilliant blues to a fairy-tale pink. The colour of the lake is attributed to high concentrations of salt tolerant algae, Dunalella Sailina.

Thank you to Megan for sending me those wonderful postcards from her home.
