Pink Lake Tours - Geraldton Air Charter

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 Full Day Tour
  • Pink Lake + Abrolhos Islands Half Day 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).
