Cotter Dam Discovery Trail

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.

The 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 take a front row seat on the new amphitheatre style viewing platform to watch the enlargement of Cotter Dam as it happens.

The discovery trail is located opposite Cotter Avenue and is approximately a 30-minute drive from Civic.

Screenmakers created a series of signs for the Discovery Trail, including ground plates, directional signs, way-finding car park signs, interpretive signage, panorama signs and commemorative panels.
