When the lake surface turns pink due to algae and minerals, and there is no rain after warm weather, it is great to see this natural phenomenon. Parking spaces are very limited, but if you can’t find a parking space, drive out of the park and turn left, then turn left at the roundabout. You can park in the nearby industrial area, where there is an old railway line coming out Path.
I am very excited to visit this pink lake, but it is disappointing that it is no longer pink. I only saw the pink lake a month later! Anyway, it was near the highway. If you are there, please stop by and see if the lake has turned pink. We visited here in mid-June 2019.
The seaweed growing on the salt crust at the bottom of the lake will produce red substances. The high temperature and abundant sunlight in summer will increase the salinity of this Salt lake, forming the most pink lake in Melbourne, attracting many ins bloggers to check in. Westgate Park is a very original urban park. In addition to Salt Lake, there is also an ordinary lake with a larger area. Almost no one cares about the entire park, and one or two local people can be seen moving out. There are several trails in the park: River walk 1.5KM 20 minutes Lake walk 1.8KM 22 minutes Heath walk 1.2KM 15 minutes Salk Lake walk 0.8KM 10 minutes Address: Fisherman_s Bend, Melbourne Transportation: At the entrance I saw the 265 and the city center The 606 bus stop to and from Elsternwick, Westgate park this stop is Fisherman's bend terminus or take the 235 Fishermans Bend bus at the southern cross and get off at Wirraway Dr. Tips: 1.
