Cotter Dam open day (take 2)

| | Comments (0)
On Saturday they had another open day at Cotter Dam.  Except this time you had to book tickets in advance.  So the whole was much more pleasant and civilised than last time, which involved lots of standing around trying to shelter from the rain and getting stressed over people pushing in trying to get onto the buses.

Pleasant waiting area

The top path is where we got to get out and take photos.  The middle path is where we went last time, but couldn't get out this time :(

After the bus trip, went on the Discovery Trail again

The old little bridge across the Cotter River was swept away last year
