If you’ve ever driven to the Flinders Ranges or the Mid North, chances are you’ve noticed a tire sculpture in the middle of Lake Bumbunga (Pink Lake) affectionately called the Loch-eel.
The tire sculpture now has a friend, with another Loch-eel added to the mix.
The sculpture was recently installed and is part of a redevelopment of the Pink Lake, an hour and a half drive, or 125kms north, of Adelaide.
The local legend is that the Loch-eel is the cousin of the mythical Loch Ness Monster.
The Pink Lake has long been a tourist attraction due to the pink sheen the salt flat gives off.
Right across the road from the lake is the Jitter Bean Cafe which is the perfect spot to grab a coffee and a bite to eat to fuel up for your journey.
If you want a little bit longer to explore the area then there is the magnificent Pink lake Tiny House available for overnight stays.
You can find the new Loch-eel at Lake Bumbunga, between the town of Lochiel and the farming locality of Bumbunga.
