We have great lakes and rivers, some of which turn pink

Australia is known for its incredible beaches, but don’t overlook the great lakes and rivers. Lake Eyre in South Australia is Australia’s largest salt lake at 9,500 km2 and regularly cycles from completely dry to a full basin dependent on rainfall. The Murray River is 2,508km and is Australia’s longest single river, running across three states and bringing lush green landscapes to its surrounds. Australia is also home to extraordinary pink lakes that have to be seen to be believed. From the outback of South Australia to the coast of Western Australia, there are few things that are as beautiful and baffling as Australia’s pink lakes.
