About Murray-Sunset National Park
A favorite for bushwalkers as the nearest semi-arid region to Melbourne. Hikes include circuits of Lake Crosbie and Lake Kenyon, and the three-day Sunset walking track. The special attraction here is the pink lakes. In late summer a red pigment, carotene, is secreted from the alga Dunaliella salina and gives a distinct pink color to the lake.
