**Please note, the Pink Colour of Lake Hillier is a natural phenomenon, and as such cannot be guaranteed on the day of your flight depending on the natural changes in the Lake. You will always get the same flight over the magical white sands and turquoise waters that make the Esperance region so famous, and during times when Lake Hillier is discoloured, you will have the option to instead do the Pink Lakes | Le Grand Scenic Flight, taking in the amazing sight of up to 30 pink Lakes nestled amongst the Esperance Farmland!!
