Hasn't been pink for a number of years so maybe they should change it back to it's original name. Mind you it still is a great sight and very relaxing siting there at a lookout sight enjoying the surroundings.

Saw all the reviews about it not going pink any more. If you wait till the right time. (Sunset/sunrise) it goes a great colour and you get some amazing reflections on the water. Picture was take with a phone camera.

Not pink any more. Changed conditions and salt mining have killed off the pink producing alge. Don’t bother to go.

Huge disappointment now- no more pink! The water level was down so I suppose the environment has changed and the pink will be no more? Do not waste your time

Got to admit we never read any reviews regarding the lake and the fact it's no longer pink. Was a big disappointment on the day but got over it very quickly as Esperance is amazing regardless. I just wish they'd remove the pink lake from...More
