Information

Salt lagoon with evaporation ponds at southern end. Good views from hills along the George Grey Drive heading to Kalbarri.

It's official name of Hutt Lagoon was given by explorer George Grey who camped on its edge in 1839, however it is commonly referred to as Pink Lake.

Hutt Lagoon is a salt lake with a pink hue due to the presence of the carotenoid producing algae, Dunaliella salina, which is a source of beta-carotene, used as a food-colouring agent and source of Vit A. in cosmetics and supplements. The lagoon contains the worlds largest microalgae production plant.
