Location: Lake Deborah, a natural salt lake 500km north east of Perth, Western Australia.
  • During winter, the rain dissolves part of the lake’s salt crust, drawing brine to the surface of the lake. This is the beginning of the new salt harvest.
  • During summer, sunshine evaporates the brine, allowing a new layer of salt crystals to form on the lake’s surface.
  • WA Salt harvests the new salt crystals from the surface of the lake. The lake repeats the salt cycle.
  • The new salt crystals are stockpiled at the edge of the lake.
  • The salt is gently washed before being transported to Fremantle for packaging.
  • 100% natural lake salt products are then distributed Australia-wide by WA Salt Supply.
