The must see destination is named the Hutt Lagoon and this pretty lake isn’t your normal blueish color.

What is an Instagram worthy site, the Hutt Lagoon changes to bright colors due to algae!

More specifically, the algae in the lake is a caroteinoid-producing algae which is also known as a beta-carotene, a food coloring agent.

From bubblegum pink, to a pretty purple to even a shade of Twizzler red, this lake continuously changes colors throughout the day for a spectacular site seeing fieldtrip.

When the sun is directly over the lake, the pink color is at its most vibrant shade while hovering clouds can make the lake more of a blush pink.

The more algae, the brighter the color!

The Hutt Lagoon (aka the pink lake), is located in Australia and it’s recommended to visit the tourist hotspot in the summer between the hours of 10am and 2pm!
