Around Melbourne | Pink Lake

I know this is probably old news by now, but I finally went to see the “Pink Lake” in Melbourne at Westgate Park. The salt water lake turns pink almost every summer due to the interaction of algae and halobacterium in the heat.  Lots of people were there to see it before it disappears.
If you go, be warned: it’s stinky!
