secret mermaid pool – Cairns Bay

We found (thanks to some mates!), a super secret ‘mermaid’ pool (Cairns Bay), just out near Flinders. A gorgeous walk in (and down a fairly good set of steps and hill – not recommended for the injured!), we came across a rocky outcrop to the right, and a beach full of rocks to the left….
