The Hillier Pink lake

I have just learned that in Australia there is a pink lake!
It is the Hillier Lake and it's AWESOME!



The most notable feature of the lake is its pink colour. The colour is permanent, and does not alter when the water is taken in a container. Interestingly, the source of the pink colour has not been definitively proven in the case of Lake Hillier, but the pink colour could be due to red halophilic bacteria in the salt crusts. Despite the unusual hue, the lake exhibits no known adverse effects upon humans. From above, the lake appears a solid bubble gum pink 

If you want to see where the Hillier Lake is, take a look on Google Maps
