Lake Hillier in Western Australia has a pink color. The lake is located off the southern coast of Western Australia, precisely in Middle Island. The color of the water in Lake Hiller seemed a stark contrast with the surroundings, dominated by the green color because it is surrounded by dense forest. When you cross the lake using air, of course you will see a strange lake, but its existence is real.
A lake with a length of 600 meters it also has its own story. Lake Hillier apparently discovered in 1802 by British explorer named Matthew Flinders. Middle Island is located in the Recherche Islands are uninhabited islands are covered by a thick forest of eucalyptus. These islands originally mapped by Flinders who became a captain.
When he discovered the island, he went ashore an island called Middle Island. He climbed to the highest peak of the island, where he could see the lake pink as the color of pink roses. Flinders then gave the name of this lake by the name of seafaring colleagues who died of dysentery in Middle Island.
Flinders and other colleagues also found that Lake Hillier has a salty taste similar to the Dead Sea. They also fill the vessel with salt from the beach is nearby. Lake Hillier is not the only pink-colored lake in the world. Lake Retba in Senegal Beach also has the same color as Lake Hillier.
Lake Hillier shows the striking color when viewed from the sky. But in fact the color is slightly different when viewed from the beach. Because the water will look more transparent, but still pink. Even if the lake water is inserted into the bottle, the color of the water will not change.
