How to travel to the Pink Lake from Perth?

I have a plan to visit Perth for a week in April. Is it possible to go to the Pink Lake in Esperance by public transportation? Does Anybody know how I can get there and how long it will take?

Thank you.

By public transport it's about a ten hour bus trip leaving Perth at 8am and arriving in Esperance at 6-6.15pm. You'd need to overnight two nights in Esperance as you'd need to join a tour group to see the Pink Lake (which according to the Esperance Visitor Centre isn't very pink at the moment) then go back to Perth on the bus at 8am the following day. Three days just to see a lake that isn't pink seems a waste of your short time in WA but you may feel differently.

Everytime Ive been to the pink lake it has only a very slight hint of pink. I reckon you have to be lucky with the right conditions on the day.

Wasn't pink when I was there a few years back, nor was it pink when friends visited over Christmas.

Nice blue ocean though:)
