Not very far from the Melbourne CBD (Central Business District), the port of Melbourne’s Westgate Park Saltwater lake turns PINK! Am sure girls are gonna love this lake 😉 The pink color is the result of a natural and harmless phenomenon that occurs due to the summer temperature and high saltwater concentration in the lake. Dunaliella salina and halobacterium are the scientific harmless reasons causing this visual wonder.
According to experts, the hot weather, salty water and sunlight coupled with low rainfall causes this beautiful phenomena. However, this is an awesome looking lake with the colour added is a must visit summer palace in Melbourne in close proximity to the city.
