Canberra’s Pink Lake | Couple of Steps

Yes, you read that right, a pink lake in Canberra. We guess Western Australia isn’t the only place to see pink lakes. The lake dubbed as Canberra’s “millennial pink” pond is on Eardley Street in Bruce. The pink dusty hue is due to the pink water plants, a native fern species called Azolla Pinnata. The fact that it is pink typically indicates good water quality.

This pond is a perfect spot for a unique social media post. You can see a lot of locals and visitors clicking away pictures on their mobiles and cameras. The place seems to be on the outskirts of town but is just 10 minutes drive from the city centre. There are a few good cafes in the area, as well as plenty of street parking. It’s not a lake or rather a pond, you would want to dive right into but it’s a good place to stop for your next Instagram post.

Hi Sneha, yes the bigger lake is much more beautiful to look at. The bubblegum pink is due to algae present in water. We know there are airplane rides but not sure of boats though.
