In Australia there is one very amazing lake that affects everyone who sees it for the first time to its unique unusual water color. To add a bit of mystery to describe, say, what is the color, more characteristic of Flamingo – soft milky-pink.
The lake is located on one of the Islands in the South-Western area of the Australian continent. The island is named Average, and the lake itself is named Hiller. The area which it occupies, is very small. It is an oval with dimensions of only 600 meters by 250 meters.
For the first time this lake was discovered by the English expedition led by Matthew Flinders in 1802. The miracle of nature after its opening is not particularly attracted researchers, while the island until the early twentieth century served as a base for whaling ships from around the world.
In the early twentieth century in the lake district decided to develop a salt Deposit. But even the use of special equipment did not allow to achieve a high level of profitability, and production was closed very quickly. In addition, the color of the water scared away consumers who were not particularly eager to buy the salt produced from the lake of an unusual color. Tourists also do not particularly want to visit this place and the island is today only occasionally attracts some scientists, who could reveal the secret of the color of its water.
Globally there are a large number of water bodies with such strange and unusual for the bottom color. Almost on every continent you can find pink lake. In Senegal there is a lake Retba, in Spain, Catalonia, in the territory of Canada has found refuge lake Dusty, Azerbaijan stretched surface Masazir and even in the Crimea there is such a miracle – Kojashsky lake with pink waters.
Most striking is the fact that scientists still can’t determine the reason why the water in the Hillier is pink. If other secret pink bodies are fully solved, there was not found any reasons that affect the color change. In most waters on the planet in pink water color or some unique species of algae or bacteria cyanocobalamin. Sometimes pink is the color of the water can give chemical compounds found in rocks. Any impact on water from previously known sources in Australian lake is found, and the mystery of the color of its waters remains unsolved to this day.
Swimming in this reservoir is possible, but depends entirely on the desires of the tourists. Instead of sand or pebbles its banks are studded with salt crystals.
