Pony rides and bouncy castles kept the children entertained while adults enjoyed the view at the launch of the new Horrocks Lookout on the weekend.

The Town Team Movement initiative supported by RAC aims to benefit towns with new projects and designs.

The Glance Over Horrocks Lookout submission received the most votes from members on the panel after cyclone Seroja tore through the Mid West last year and damaged the existing lookout.

On Sunday, July 17, the launch included a sausage sizzle, children’s entertainment and a tour experience where community members were led through the new and improved lookout.

The lookout — featuring new paving, gravel, sculptures, sundial and benches — was launched 15 months after the cyclone hit.

Senior manager communications Rhys Heron said RAC was privileged to be able to bring the community together after the devastation of cyclone Seroja.

The new lookout can be found along Glance Street in Horrocks.
