Next on the tour was the recently enlarged Cotter Dam which plays a vital role in providing ACT with fresh water. The walk around Cotter Dam gives information about the history, purpose and development of the dam, but it was a strange feeling upon seeing the commemorative stone showing that the new dam and walk ...
