Drove past these almost every day whilst away......can't quite understand why people would visit. In fact I didn't actually see anybody visit. Attracts some great wildlife though.

Wouldn't spend the whole day here but a short visit on the way to somewhere is worth it. Parked on the north side of the lake and walked down to the waters edge ... it really is pink, with amazing salt crystallised around the edges....More

Really beautiful pink salt lake. A bit hard to find but worth it! Not really a beach, but there is place for a few ppl to lie/sit by the water.

yes you would not believe how pink this lake can get. But be awhere this is a working salt lake and is rough around the edges. the locals and some tourist do go down and coat themselves in mud and stand drying of in the sun... More
Are there any hides overlooking the lake or if not what are the best places to see the flamingos and other wildlife ?

its not the pink lake that has the bird life. its the natural lake that is close by. there are viewing platforms along the way. lovely walk/cycle around. take plenty of water as gets very hot during summer months.
