Cotter mine No.2 adit. This adit was refurbished by the Bureau of Mineral Resources in about 1975 as part of the local government's idea of promoting tourism in the Cotter area and for mining students. The area was extensively damaged by the 2003 ACT bushfire. The sign says STRICTLY NO ADMITTANCE HIDDEN VERTICAL DROP IN MINESHAFT referring to the winze in the floor of the drive some 75m further on but inaccessible.
