Mermaid Pool Circuit
January 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
On Sunday 13th January, 2019 come journey with us to Mermaid Pools along the Matura River, Matura Village, Salybia. This hike was inspired by one of the legs for the Fusion Challenge and thus is not for the easy going hiker. It takes you to the source of the Matura River where we will come down through various views of nature, cascades, cave formations, plunge pools, mini-rapids and calm-chilly-lengthy expanses of clear water until we reach Mermaid Pool.
This hike is exhausting as it is amazing and it is suggested that you thoroughly secure your phones and electrical items. They WILL get wet if not secured. Double and triple bag setups are suggested.
There would be lots of swimming involved, so even Swimmers may get life jackets…
