Lake Vincent gets its vibrant pink hue from the minerals in the salt water and is popular amongst those taking the scenic cycling route around the Island.
Salt lakes occupy ten per cent of the area of Rottnest Island. Many of them - including Lake Baghdad, Lake Vincent, Herschel Lake, Garden Lake, Government House Lake and Serpentine Lake - are permanent and have surrounding beaches. Other lakes such as Pink Lake, Lake Sirius, Lake Negri and the twin Pearse Lakes may dry out in summer.
Exploring the lakes area, you can following educational interpretive signage to discover how the lakes were formed, what makes the lakes pink and why they are considered such a unique eco system. The Lakes Walk of the Wadjemup Walk Trail meanders through the lake systems including a magical stroll along the Lakes Boardwalk.
