Looking at things to do in Hyden whilst visiting Wave Rock, the local area tourist info website mentioned this salt lake and that it was free to swim in it. It looked lovely in the photos and having been to the Dead Sea and thoroughly enjoyed that experience, I was keen to give our own WA version a try.

Whilst it may have been free in the past, it certainly isn't now, and it's not the natural lake that you swim in, but a man-made swimming pool (with work still ongoing).

So if you want to have the Dead Sea experience (minus the mud pack) right here in WA this is what you need to know: At the kiosk at the Wave Rock Caravan Park (actually at Wave Rock) you pay $10pp and will be given a card that let's you open the boom gate across the road from the kiosk to access the pool, which is part of the Wave Rock Resort complex. You must return the key by 6.00pm when the kiosk closes.

Once inside the boom gate, there is no signage, but you wind your way around past the airport on your left, through the gates of the Resort and then on your right you will find the round man-made swimming pool, which is where you swim. It is nicely done - or will be when it's finished - with limestone walls and change sheds with toilets and showers (very necessary to wash the salt off yourself afterwards). I am not sure if you can swim in the natural salt lake, but didn't see any sign that you could.

If you are staying at the Wave Rock Resort, I understand you don't have to pay to swim in the pool.

Pro tip: Remember, avoid getting the saltwater in your eyes, and if you have recently shaved your legs or have any cuts or scratches, the saltwater will sting!

Lake Magic can be reached either by arriving in front of the small Hyden Airport and turning right or from E Hyden Bin Rd by turning left at the sign for Wave Rock Resort. Both roads are unsealed but suitable for any type of car. The lake is not very large and almost circular in shape. The shallow water is crystal clear, transparent and blue-green under the sun. There is a sandy area surrounding the lake that looks like a beach, but you have to be careful because in many places, especially on the north side, the sand is mixed with mud and chalk and you sink if you get close to the water. We almost lost a shoe by having sunk to the ankle. This lake is very salty and this is reported to be also due to the gypsum minerals at its base. The name Magic derives from the fact that the amount of salt in water increases its density so much that the human body naturally floats. This salt water is used in the nearby circular pool, the Lake Magic swimming pool. The vegetation around the lake and the surrounding pools consists of trees some of which are dead and dry, giving a feeling of desolation, while the low vegetation with flowers is green and well surviving on the sandy soil layer. Our visit was relatively short and took place around noon and therefore we could not verify if the lake actually changes color at sunrise and sunset. As we left the lake we turned around the airport and took a road through the interesting Lake Gounter wetland area. An interesting and enjoyable visit but of low priority and only if you are in the area.

Taking a dip in this lake which the locals affectionally call 'the donut' is a strange experience. You try to get to the bottom of the lake and you can't as the salt/mineral content is so thick? it is extremely salty and strange to float in. If you are in the area it is worth-while stopping by to take a look.

Beautiful location to sit and watch the colours of the sky reflected in the lake. Easy walk along the boardwalk from Wave Rock. Take the aerogard!

Have just spent 3 magic days in the cabins by the lake. Even though it was at the cusp of the season we were lucky that there had been some rain so the lake had water in it. We were fortunate in that we got to see the magic happen, not at night as there was wind but in the early morning it was a special sight. The accommodation was incredible. The cabins are spacious , very comfortable and well appointed with everything you need and room for six.

We had planned to visit Lake Magic at sunset. And when we saw that the 3.6km Wave Rock Circuit passes by Lake Magic, we thought we might as well kill 2 birds with one stone. Actually, 4 birds as it passed by Hippo's Yawn and the Salt Pond as well. It was a pleasant walk coming across salt lakes which were all dried up that gave a haunting desolate look. We also saw 2 kangaroos who were as curious about us as we were off them. The Wave Rock Resort is located in the same area as the Salt Pond and Lake Magic. As we reached the Salt Pond, the sun was just starting to set and we took some pics here first before moving on to Lake Magic. It was truly magical watching the sun set over Lake Magic and the pictures came out pretty good too. Walking back to Wave Rock, we passed the Wave Rock Airport and hurried back to our cabin before it got too dark.

A nice & short drive from Hyden.The trip provides a good overview of the vegetation in the area. Amazing place to watch the sunset over the lake.

Pas beau en cette saison car la sécheresse a frappé. Les lacs vers Lake Grace sont beaucoup plus beaux
