Pink Lake at Port Gregory @ Kalbarri, Western Australia

Henry Tan | 7:19 PM | |
Have you seen a pink lake? Well, if you happen to visit to Western Australia, Pink Lake at Port Gregory is definitely a must visit place! During our Day 7 of Perth Trip, we dropped by Pink Lake while we were on the road trip to Kalbarri.

The Pink Lake we visited in Port Gregory lies near the mouth of Hutt Lagoon. Hutt Lagoon boasts a pink hue created by the presence of carotenoid-producing algae Dunaliella salina, a source of ß-carotene, a food-colouring agent and source of vitamin A. Depending on the time of day, the season and the amount of cloud cover, the lake changes through the spectrum of red to bubble-gum pink to a lilac purple.

We arrived around sunset at 6pm where many said that the best time of day to visit is mid-morning or sundown. The Pink Lake turned into bubble-gum pink at the point of time. There were only one other group of tourists there enjoying with us the picturesque sunset over the unique pink lake. 

We took a lot of photos there before the sky turns completely dark. Same like anyone else, we were all curious if the water itself would be pink. So I did scooped a little with my hand but it was quite transparent. Even when I filled the pink lake water into a bottle, the color was not as dark as what we saw with naked eyes. (FYI, the bottle still sitting in my friend's house!) 😂😂😂

Overall, Pink Lake at Port Gregory definitely worth the visit. If you have more budget, do check out the Pink Lake Scenic Flight from Geraldton as you will be able to enjoy the bird eye view. In my opinion, standing next to the pink lake is much better experience while scenic flight would give you awesome photos! So bring a drone there and you can enjoyed both! 😁
