Bumbunga comes from an indigenous language and means "lake of rain". Bumbunga Lake is about 130 kilometers drive from Adelaide city, on the edge of the A1 highway (Princes Hwy). Like most pink lakes in Australia, the lake here is very shallow, and the deepest point is only about 10 cm.
Bumbunga comes from the indigenous word Parnpangka, which means rain water lake. Along the way, iron skins withered, huge cockroaches, mice, tin people, flying saucers, big flies, etc. This is a very ironic set of sculptures made by civil environmentalists using waste products to protest the government's construction of a landfill in this area. Among them is the title of "The World's Largest Cockroach" certified by Channel 9 Australia!
Adelaide’s pink mystery, the lake of rain — LAKE BUMBUNGA, also screened in the same scene — the world’s largest cockroach! Be careful! Many people don't know the Pink Lake in Australia, and there is also in South Australia. There is also a very large pink lake, Lake Bumbunga, more than 130 kilometers north of Adelaide.
I had never seen a pink lake before, and I discovered it by chance. When I first passed by, I only saw a piece of pink from a distance. I didn't know where that big piece of pink was, so I decided to see what this mysterious pink piece was. But just this way, I saw a romantic scene that I will never forget in my life. Turning the salt lake into a palette is caused by some microorganisms in the salt lake. If you go deeper, it is the factors of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is not just about absorbing red and blue light and reflecting green light. For some low-level microorganisms that have not made progress for billions of years, they can absorb the visible light of other wavelengths to reflect all kinds of weird colors. Under the refraction of the sun, the pink lake exudes dim light. In good weather, taking pictures against the sun, faintly with the beauty of the sky, it is really worthwhile to come here~ This encounter can be said to be a casual encounter, the most romantic ~Because not many people know this attraction, the direct bus from Adelaide to Powder Lake has not been opened yet. If you want to go to Fenhu, then the most convenient transportation is by car. It is located next to the Prince Highway. It is a high-speed way from Adelaide. The road conditions are relatively good. There is also a parking area for tourists nearby. It is very convenient to park. It is recommended that everyone go and see~ It is a girl's heart. It's so beautiful! It is said that Hiller Lake in Western Australia has a beautiful pink color, mainly because the algae in the lake produce rich β-carotene, which makes the lake water more salty and slightly bright pink. However, according to the local indigenous people, this pink lake was formed because of legends that a goddess bathed here. The pink lake is also very shallow, with the deepest being only about 1 meter deep.
From Adelaide north to China and Australia, the first thing I met unexpectedly was a pink salt lake. Her name is very cute, called Bumbunga Lake (Bumbunga Lake). The salt lakes in the interior are mostly dry, and it takes a long time to fill up with water. But the lake water brings together the salt and minerals in the red earth, like a huge palette, paint on this land. Most of the lake has dried up, only the near shore is flat and light pink salt, and the water in the distance is deeper pink. You can also walk down to take pictures near the shore. If you go deeper, your feet will sink into the mud. . . (Don’t ask how I know!)
