It's a hole having pink salt on the bottom. I guess it will have water during rainy season. I didn't understand the attraction.

Years ago during the summer you would see laden donkeys carrying the salt that was harvested here yearly & it was a good crop !

Very interesting place! If you happen to drive not far from there I would definitely recommend visiting this palce. Better to come at sunrise or sunset.

Stark and austere, this lake is amazing. There is a 4km walking trail along the side of the lake, and you can also work across the salt.

The salt lake is impressive but at this time of the year it is dry and you can see the salt as it is all white :)

Great in the winter as there are hundreds and hundreds of pink flamingos here. You can park in a number of locations around the lake and walk along a path to view.

Though the lake was dry it had turned into a beautiful stretch of crystallised salt. It was truly spectacular.

If you want to see flamingos don't go this time of year as it's all dried out. So no flamingos. Opposite just across the main road is mckenzie beach which is great and cheaper for water sport activities.
