“Great place for relaxing and taking the kids for a walk/play”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Been down to "The Cotter" a number of times for family picnics and to catch up with friends. Always lovely down there, good facilities, well cared for. The playground is fun for the kids and you can take a stroll to the nearby dam.

“Well developed”
Reviewed January 5, 2014

They have made a interesting and educational boardwalk alongside the creek. It is also a pleasent picnic and BBQ area that's great for kids and has lots of shades. I certainly didn't expect such developement when we rounded the corner on the road.

“Popular picnic venue”
Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Great for family get togethers - recently redeveloped following bush fires and dam construction. Good facilities with plenty of space for the kids to run around. It is a very popular venue, especially on weekends.

“Great place for a BBQ, picnic or walk”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Restoration of the area is going well, plenty of facilities and good play areas for kids, dam lookout is OK but not particularly spectacular. Nice drive, do the round circuit via Tharwa for a good look at local countryside.
