Wreck of HMCS MERMAID

In 2008 the Australian National Maritime Museum organised an expedition, sponsored by the Foundation, to search for the remains of HMCS Mermaid which was wrecked on an uncharted reef south of Cairns in 1829.

The wreck site of HMCS Mermaid was subsequently discovered and a Protected Zone declared around the site in January 2009.
