    Nice spot for photo
    Amazing view of the pink lake. Drive to the pink lake lookout where you can walk down to the pink lake for some nice photo. We went around 2pm during our trip. There is another spot for nice photo after the lookout carpark but it is on a 2-way traffic where you park at the roadside.

    So special, just stop on you way to or from Kalbarri
    Very, very beautiful. It is actually just a look out point, so if you take the coastal road from or to Kalbarri, instead of the HW, it is only a 5 km de-tour and so worth it. We were there around 3 pm and the colors were still very pink. It is advised to go before noon, but we were later and still OK. One of the most beautiful spots in WA.

    Vivid Pink in July
    Pink lake is actually in Port Gregory. We visited in the month of July and it was extremely pink, I’ve never seen a lake wth such vivid pink colour and I’ve seen a few so called pink lakes around the state. Worth a visit 👍 hopefully at other times of the year it is still this good.

    Incredible Colours
    Pink Lake near Kalbarri was just mind-blowing. I must admit to be a bit sceptical going out there, sceptical yet curious. I figured the pictures I had seen were colour enhanced and that the lake would have, at best,a slight pink hue. How wrong can you be! The pinkness was just astonishing. There are a few nice lay-bys to pull in at and you can get right down to the shore at several of these points. We couldn't get enough of the place. There is absolutely nothing there shops or facilities wise, butt hat's a good thing! It leaves the place more untouched and people don't stay as long. We often had bits of it to ourselves as we stopped at a few places. Pink Lake turned out to be one of the most memorable places we visited in our entire three week trip along the Western Australian coast. An absolute must-see.

    DO IT!!!!!!
    The trip over the Pink Lake was absolutely worth every cent!! To see it from the air is the only way to go! Hayden our pilot was fabulous and gave us very informative commentary about everywhere we went!! It was great to see the Skywalk, Murchison River and all the coastline by air!! Would recomment this tour to everyone!!!

    It’s pink
    It’s a big pink lake that smells bad. It’s very photogenic and makes for a great insta post but it’s a challenge to get too down steep sand dunes with no real access. The shore line is crusty and dirty so no white shoes! Looks fab though and time of day is really important for ‘that’ photo otherwise the water looks blue like a normal lake…

Amazing to see this place. Well worth a visit. Drive around both sides, then get out of your vehicle and take a walk to see the pink crystals up close and just take in the beauty of the pink expanse.

It’s pink but best from a distance on road. Close up less pink although reflections of clouds pink. Oddly interesting but don’t expect a bright pink lake.

Easy to get to. Water is pink. How pink? We’ll that depends entirely on the conditions when you visit. At least it’s not out the way even if conditions aren’t the best.

Yep, it is pink with a cunning wire based group of flamingos being covered in crystals.
Wind was a pain.
Not too busy, don't bother with Point Gregory unless you need their loos, has an interesting history panel nearby re Japanese sub activity.
Continuing to Kalbarri passed a BASF plant, obviously there are sought after minerals in them there waters, not to mention a garnet mine ?
