Lake Hilier is one of the peculiarities of the world. Why is it pink? Is it the kelp or some bacteria? The lake was discovered in the 19th century by sailor Matthew Flinders.
To this day, scientists have no idea what causes the unusual pink color of this lake. In the fifties, they came up with the theory that it was the Dunaliella salina that caused the red dye to blame. Algae itself is healthy, has antioxidant effects. Over time, this theory was refuted. However, we can say with certainty that it is impossible to drown in this lake. The lake is not too deep, you can go for a walk or lie down in it.
