The picturesque Pink Lakes are named because of their colour after winter and spring rains. The Pink Lakes change in colour from a deep pink to a glistening white and are best viewed early or late in the day or when it is cloudy. The lakes evaporate over hot summer months leaving concentrated salt crusts over black mud.
Salt mine relics have lain on the edges of the Pink Lakes since salt industry operations ceased in 1979. Pioneer Drive offers great views of the Pink Lakes, from Lake Crosbie to Lake Kenyon and Lake Becking.
There are several short and easy walking tracks in the Pink Lakes area. Due to the sandy ground the tracks are not suitable for wheelchairs.
