The enchanting pink lakes of Australia
You'll think you're on another planet!
Australia is a country known for its natural wonders, but there are few more unique than the pink lakes. A pink lake is a rare find anywhere in the world, and Australia's are some of the most beautiful.
This natural phenomenon is caused by a combination of the perfect conditions: high temperatures, low rainfall, salt, and specific algae and bacteria that produce beta-carotene. When all of these factors come together at the right moment, you have a pink lake. The stunning hues can come and go depending on the time of year, or disappear forever if environmental factors change.
