Large chunk of Queensland beach collapses into the ocean

A large portion of beach at Inskip Point has collapsed into the ocean on Monday morning, almost three years after a giant hole swallowed caravans and threatened campers in 2015.

Double Island Point Fishing Charters posted on Facebook estimating the hole was 7.5 metres deep.

In mid-September 2015, 200-metres of the Inskip Point coastline fell into the ocean, consuming a car, caravan, tents and a trailer.

Geotechnical engineer Allison Golsby told ABC at the time that there were fears Inskip Point might eventually disappear.

She said the camping site should have had a monitoring system to warn of any further disasters.

The Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service have been approached for comment.
