Location: Middle Island
Lake Hillier is located on Middle Island which is a protected island off Cape Arid national park, at least 120kms east of Esperance. It is famously coloured pink, which can be seen as a stunning bubblegum pink from the air and transparent pink from land. If you see the lake from above, the contrast between the pink of the lake and the blue of the ocean is very striking.
There is two ways you can visit Lake Hillier, the first is by boat. Esperance Island Cruises can take you there but you must book in advance to secure a date. You can also see the lake by plane - see Goldfields Air Services.
