Its startling color remains a mystery and while scientists have proven it's not due to the presence of algae, unlike the other salt lakes down under, they still can't explain why it's pink....

In 1835, young Joshua Newlove fell down a hole and inadvertently discovered Margate’s Shell Grotto. Seventy feet of underground tunnels lead to a chamber decorated with arcane symbols made entirely from sea shells.
