It’s been an absolute god-send being here with Gracie in my first few weeks. If it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to go around and see so many incredible things. One of those being Pink Lake. About a 2 hour drive from the heart of Adelaide, Pink Lake is tucked away pretty much in the middle of nowhere.
// Pink Lake – Getting There \\
From Adelaide, take the M1 all the way to Murray Bridge, before changing for the A1 to Tailem Bend. Here you’ll follow signs for the B1 and follow this all the way down until you see the sign for Pink Lake. Beware: blink and you’ll miss it.
We head out hoping for an epic sunset, however there were just too many clouds. Check out this blog post >> HERE << if you want to see some killer Aussie sunsets. We drove for about an hour before reaching Pink Lake. Some tourists think it’s okay to take their car right onto the lake. I promise you, it’s not. 9 out of 10 people end up getting their car stuck in the thick mud. Please don’t try this.
When you reach the lake, it really is so impressive at how nature can create something so beautiful like this. The pink hue coming from the water almost makes it look unrealistic. Pictures don’t do it justice. Like I said, this place really is in the middle of nowhere. So make sure you plan your trip wisely to avoid running low on fuel or getting lost.
As you’ll be out that way anyway, you might as well look around for other things to do in the area. We found our way round to Point Malcom, an inland lighthouse. Fun Fact: It’s the Southern Hemispheres only inland lighthouse. To be fair, the lighthouse wasn’t much to look at but we did see a bunch of Pelicans… something I’ve never seen in the wild before. These birds are huge up close!
If you’re passing through the area, I’d highly suggest you stop off and enjoy these free tourist stops. They’re slightly unheard of and off the beaten track a little, so make the most of them whilst you can.
