Cotter Dam Commemorative Sign

A large-format mural, made up of eight panels, covers the back wall of the viewing platform.

The Cotter Dam Discovery Trail and viewing platform, opened in September 2010, allows the community to watch the live action at the Cotter Dam worksite.

Screenmakers created a spectacular large-format mural, which covers the back wall of the viewing platform, and features a timeline and descriptive information about the Cotter Dam.Eight equal-size (1200mm W x 2000mm H) graphic panels make up this impressive 9.6m wide mural.

The panels were recessed router-cut out of 5mm linished aluminium, then pre-treated with a clear undercoat. They were direct flatbed-printed with special double and triple strikes for certain areas. The panels were then clear satin matt over-coated in an extra-heavy finish for durability. A special fabricated curved frame was made to fix the panels to the platform post, and the graphic panels were mounted on the frame with tamper-proof fixings.
