The water is pink as there are micro organisms that produce carotenoids, and locals use them for their huge fish and lobster(crayfish) industry . Pink Lake , the actual site in Port Gregory is not as spectacular close up , as it has white foam around the water edges and small dead particles , and smells of raw shrimp and... More

Visited in February and the lake was very pink, especially toward the edges. There was some sort of works going on, in lagoons on the opposite side of the road to the lake and the water was even more pink! Well worth a visit.

We visited in March last year. Unfortunately the lake wasn't very pink at that time it does vary depending on what time of year

The pink lake is spectacular, but we found it hard to get close to from the Kalbarri-Northampton Road.

This is one of the prettiest things ive ever seen along my travels. The lake is a vibrant pink with foam floating on top. Its worth at least one look/visit in a lifetime just to say youve seen it. Becareful walking too close to the shore, its very muddy. Photos can be taken from the roadside.

It surprised me when I saw this lake. If you haven't been there, it is a must see place. Lake color was pink and in different parts of the lake, color changes as well. Looks like the pink salt on the river bank.
