Westgate Park, Melbourne Reviews

  • Really great place to see pink salt water deposits without leaving the city. Easy to get to by car and lots of parking. Cool attraction but the site is pretty dirty and can be less than picture perfect at times. It is also not a place I would recommend after dark. It is, however a good place to practice drone photography

  • We visited the pink lake at around 4pm. From far (on Westgate bridge) it looked beautiful but it stank as we got closer. We also found it extremely strange that there are many single men sitting in their cars in the parking lot. Not just a few, but at least 10 cars, each with one middle aged man sitting in his car, waiting for something(?). We were tempted to sit in our cars to find one what’s happening but left in the end. Does anyone have an answer??

  • The pink lake was pretty, but the park itself is kinda dirty. Was a nice spot to look at, however, and it appeared to have a fair amount of grass areas.

  • Bit smelly, even goes all the way up to the bridge. (Have driven there and can confirm the smell) But the pink lake looks nice...until you know what's caused to make it look pink.

  • Lovely pink but still was a turn off though. Not a bad place
