There are many Pink Lakes in the North West of Victoria and in this Blog we list the 5 we visited when we travelled through Victoria. We visited Lake Tyrell which is the largest salt lake in Victoria. We then headed out to Murray Sunset national Park which has 4 Pink lakes. Lake Hardy, Lake Crosby, Lake Kenyon and Lake Becking. The best time to visit is late summer when the lakes have the Pink hues in and around them. Although when we visited all the lakes were dried up they were defiantly pink and well worth the stop over.

Located 2 hours from Mildura and 4 hours from Melbourne, the lake is located in the town of Sea Lake. Lake Tyrell is the largest salt lake in Victoria and is worth stopping by. The best time to visit is at sunrise or sunset in June- August when the lake will be filled with water the reflections will be beautiful. We visited at sunrise in March and although there was no water it still was beautiful to visit. At the first carpark the car spaces are big enough for your caravan or RV, but only cars are able to park at the second lookout.
You can park at the first lookout and walk out to the platform or park at the platform carpark. If you decide to walk it is 1.7km each way. The walk is very easy and fairly flat, you begin walking along the boardwalk along the lake out to the big Tyrell sign, The sun lounges, and the Boardwalk.
