In January 2016 we started running our first mermaid classes in Wollongong and now we do mermaid birthday parties, mermaid shows and we are running 1-day school holiday workshops at Wylie’s Baths, Coogee and at Peppers Beach Club and Spa, Palm Cove. We also have a beautiful custom-built swimming pool available to us for hire each weekend in Sydney’s Artarmon.
