Located near Dimboola, Western Victoria there is a lake which dries out each summer to reveal a bed of salmon-coloured pink salt.

Mount Zero and the lake's traditional owners, the Barengi Gadjin Land Council, have been working together to hand harvest a small amount of salt from the lake each year.

This natural pink salt is a concentrated store of natural mineral nutrients - rich in calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, sulphur, iron, manganese, zinc and copper as well as being rich in beta carotene. 

This complexity of minerals, provides a complex, well rounded flavour - dissimilar to many sharp tasting refined salts.

The grinder is made from quality glass and a ceramic burr to cope with the ginder's higher moisture content so as not to rust. 

The partnership

The partnership between Mt Zero and Barengi Gadjin Land Council developed into a business that is mutually beneficial for both the people and the land. Every year the local community harvest together, strengthening the respect and understanding between the indigenous and non-indigenous workers. The Barengi Gadjin Land Council allows access, instruction and consultation in ways to minimise impact on the land, and Mt Zero do their best to repay this gift through employment and payment. This enables the Land Council to direct their priorities to looking after their people and preserving their Aboriginal heritage.

The Label
Aunty Nancy Harrison is a Wotjobaluk Elder. Her painting is titled ‘Bush Tukka’.

Aunty Nancy draws inspiration from growing up with her family at Antwerp and Dimboola, and spending time out ‘on country’.

‘Bush Tukka’ shows two fish and a turtle and it relates to the huge importance of the Wimmera River and the wetland systems. Fed by natural aquifers, Pink Lake is an intrinsic part of this ecology.
