However, the color is also quickly gone again, when the weather changes. Many tourists had to peel off so disappointed. The Internet-a comment of a tourist from Germany says: “We went to Melbourne to see the Pink Lake. Unfortunately, he was anything but pink. The lake looked quite normal, like any other.”
