The Mt Inkerman lookout and picnic area is getting a facelift this weekend.
Burdekin Shire Council Mayor Bill Lowis said the Rotary Club of Home Hill and council were joining forces to clean up the tourist facility on Saturday.
“The Rotary Club of Home Hill has done a fantastic job of making the Mt Inkerman lookout a great spot for people to stop and get a bird’s eye view of our region,” he said. “Rotary members will be supplying the paint and workers and council will supply star pickets, barrier mesh and waste disposal as in-kind support. This lookout is a key attraction for visitors to the Burdekin area and is also a popular place for locals to visit.”
Rotary Club of Home Hill President John Woods said club members would meet at the look-out from 7am.
“The lookout, which has been an ongoing Rotary project, was built over a number of years and this weekend we will be cleaning up the lookout surrounds and painting the picnic tables,” he said. “Rotary first cleared the lookout, then built and painted the picnic tables and finally built the barbecue. Over the years we have improved the area surrounding the lookout by spreading crusher dust and stabilising the area around the picnic tables.”
Mr Woods said the Rotary Club was always looking for people who were interested in making a positive difference to their community. Residents who would like to join the Rotary Club of Home Hill can contact Mr Woods on 0418 711 887.
