  • River closures and events at Yarra River
    Friday 28 March, 2014 |
  • Westgate Park’s salt lakes have turned pink again this summer; a natural phenomenon in response to very high salt levels (50% stronger than saltwater), high temperatures, sunlight and lack of rainfall. The salt lakes turn pink due to the natural interaction of a harmless alga and bacterium. For more information visit the Friends of Westgate Park’s website. The lakes are expected to return to their normal colour later in autumn, when cooler weather and rainfall increases. at Westgate Park
