Pink Lake Tours

Posted by | January 12, 2017 | | No Comments

The amazing Pink Lake is a salt lake in the Mid West region of Western Australia. The lake is not always pink but the distinctive colour of the water changes as a result of green alga Dunaliella salina, halobacterium Halobacteria cutirubrum, and/or high concentration of brine prawn. The original name of the Pink Lake is Hutt Lagoon.

We have three types of Pink Lake Tours:

  • Scenic Flyover Tour
  • Pink Lake + Abrolhos Islands Half Day Tour / Nature Tour
  • Pink Lake + Abrolhos Islands + Kalbarri Nature Tour.

We also have a bus to take you to have a “Kalbarri – Pink Lake- Nature’s Window” Full Day Tour on the ground. Click here to see: Kalbarri Full Day Tour (By Bus, minimum 4 passengers).


Pink Lake Scenic Flyover Tour

This 1 hour trip will allow you to enjoy the beautiful coastal line en route. You will see the town of  Horrocks which is a very little fishing village near Northampton.

You will be amazed how big the Pink Lake is! It is 14 km long and around 2.3 km wide, which makes it be the biggest Pink Lake in Australia. Enjoy it from the air is the best way to get the best view and shooting! You will see the contrast of the ocean color and the pink color, which you will never see from the ground.
