Lake Hillier, Western Australia
Lake Hillier is a salt lake located on Middle Island in the Recherche Archipelago of Western Australia. The waters of the lake, which has a high salt content, are bright pink in color. The pink color of Lake Hillier was first studied by a group of scientists in the 1950s, hoping to find a species of salt-loving algae called Dunaliella salina that produces a red pigment in very salty waters, adding color to other pink lakes in Australia, such as Lake Esperance on the mainland. The first recorded observations of Lake Hillier on Middle Island date back to 1802; the English navigator and hydrographer Matthew Flinders visited the island on his way to Sydney. After Flinders' visit, there were brief commercial visits to the island for the next few years. Seal and whale hunters settled on the island between the 1820s and 1840s. Additionally, salt was extracted from Lake Hillier since the early 20th century, but salt production only lasted for ten years, and since then, there has been little activity on the island and the pink lake.
