The Cotter Dam Discovery Trail spans a 1.4km loop and visitors can wander the new boardwalk along the Cotter River, learn about the Cotter, its history, ecology and the environment and then watch the enlargement of Cotter Dam from the new amphitheatre-style viewing platform.
Six freestanding custom-shaped i-beam posts, fabricated out of 6mm Corten steel in a rusted finish, were added to the trail for navigation purposes along the trail. These are double-sided signage panels with the directional information direct flatbed-printed on pre-painted 5mm aluminium, and then clear satin matt over-coated in an anti-graffiti finish. These markers were installed to the fabricated steel post with a sacrificial spacer mounting plate for a fully concealed fixing finish. Each post is 1200mm high, and each sign is 120mm W x 580mm H.
