In 1950, a group of scientists visited the island. They expected to find in a salt water lake some algae, imparting pinkish color to other Australian waters. In fact, the released from algae red pigment gives the water such a pinkish hue. However, to the great surprise of scientists, the analysis of lake water samples did not reveal any traces of algae. Later, appeared a version that pink water is attached by microorganisms – Archaea. However, the question still remains open.

In the history Lake Hillier was first mentioned in 1802, when English navigator Matthew Flinders traveled the Mid-Island in a route to Sydney. Later, from 1920 to 1940, whalers and sealers visited the island, and in the early twentieth century, from the lake began to extract salt. However, after a few years, salt production was stopped, and since then the silence of the Middle Island with its mysterious lake has remained untouched.
