The pink lake(Hiller Lake)- Tan Shang Jien

The location – Goldfields,Esperance region of Western Australia

It lies about 3 kilometers (2 mi) west of Esperance and is bounded to the East by the South Coast Highway.

The water changes as a result of green algae,  Halobacteria cutirubrum, and/or high concentration of brine prawn.

The alga begins to accumulate the red pigment beta carotene.

This lake is used for both tourism purposes and salt production.

Table salt is produced in solar ponds at the eastern end of the lake.

The company WA Salt supply produce water softening salt, coarse salt and sheepskin salt at the Esperance site.
