The change in color is a seasonal natural phenomenon, with its color expected to return to normal later in the year. According to the Parks Victoria Facebook page, the pink shade is brought on by a mix of high salt levels, high temperatures, sunlight and lack of rainfall. This causes algae at the bottom of the lake to produce a red pigment. “Enjoy the views, but we recommend you don’t come into contact with the water,” Parks Victoria wrote. “The lake is expected to return to its normal color towards winter.

Although it would be interesting to take a dip in the pink-hued lake, the park advises against swimming in the lake in its current condition. According to Parks Victoria, “Enjoy the views, but we recommend you don’t come into contact with the water,” Parks Victoria wrote. “The lake is expected to return to its normal towards the winter. Parks Victoria said:

“Enjoy the views, but we recommend you don’t come into contact with the water. The lake is expected to return to its normal color towards winter, when the weather cools and rainfall increases.”
