The Pink lake Hiller is Flew.

If you are traveling to the Australian lake Hiller is safely remove the rose-colored glasses! After all, you no longer need, the space around you and it will be pink. To be exact — this unique lake has a milky pink color.

It is located on the island of Middle (Average), on the South-Western part of the Australian mainland, and surrounded by thickets of eucalyptus and a strip of sand. Its area is 250 metres wide and about 600 in length.

In 1802 the expedition of the British Navigator Matthew Flinders stopped at the island. Investigating it, they stumbled upon a miracle of nature — the pink lake. However, nobody paid attention to the color of the water, and a few dozen years, Middle island has become a transit point for whaling ships, but in the early 20th century, people paid attention to the lake Hiller — but again — not because of its wonderful color, and for salt production.

It does not matter. The consumer was confused by the pink color of the water, and the profit was quite small for the development of business — even with the latest machinery. And after 6 years, the project folded, and the lake is now only attracts tourists, and sometimes scientists and researchers.

In General, the lake Hiller has this color. Pink lake is on virtually every continent — in the Crimea Majskoe a lake Retba in Senegal, Masazir in Azerbaijan, Dusty lake Canada and Spanish Torrevieja. However, only the mystery of lake Hillier is still not solved! Usually, this color gives you a special seaweed, special chemicals in the rocks, or cyanobacteria. What colors Australian lake Hiller in milky-pink color?

So far, scientists do not answer the question, since the results of the studies in 1950 showed the presence of florid microorganisms (algae Dunaliella salina, which is salt water, emit red, staining fluid) as the water composition and the chemical composition of the soil. And it’s not an optical illusion — when getting water in a glass vessel, the water does not change color.

If you want to travel to Australia and look at the lake Hiller — nobody will forbid you to even swim there, but at your own risk. No resorts here, but remember that all necessary measure and do not forget to wear rubber Slippers because salt is not soft sand. As experts say, the water in lake Hillier is safe for the human body.
