Starting from the car park at Cotter Avenue, ACT, this walk takes you to the Cotter Dam Lookout and back via the Honyong-Cotter Walking Track. The Cotter Dam was enlarged in 2013 to supply Canberra with more water, and succeeded to meet the city’s needs. Get a close-up view of the dam wall to better grasp the size of it. The Cotter Avenue nearby has lots of amenities such as BBQs and playgrounds, making it a great destination for a family picnic. Swimming and birdwatching are other activities you can participate in. You’ll pass by the concrete “Flow” statue by Richard Whiteley near the start, which was made to mark the enlargement. A kangaroo or two may appear as you’re walking up and down the lookout. Check if there’s access to the lookout beforehand. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
