Murray Sunset National Park is the second largest park in Victoria, covering some 633,000 hectares. Part of the park is covered by a number of salt lakes, known as the Pink Lakes as the waters are turned pink by carotene secreted by algae in the spring. During the summer months the lakes dry out and, between 1916 and 1979, salt was harvested from the lakes and transported to Linga.
