A Rapidly Expanding Sinkhole-The Size of a Football Field-Opens With Amazing Speed, Swallowing Cars In Minutes, Forcing Evacuations

Shocked holidaymakers have described the heart-stopping moment a giant sinkhole the size of a football field swallowed vehicles at a popular camping ground near Queensland’s Rainbow Beach.

The sinkhole, estimated to be about 100 metres by 100 metres and around three metres deep, opened up at Inskip Point starting at about 11pm on Saturday, police say.

The rapidly expanding hole at the tourist attraction was so monstrous that it took just minutes to swallow a car, a caravan and a camping trailer as travellers were forced to evacuate.

A giant sinkhole the size of a football field has swallowed vehicles at a popular holiday spot in Queensland.

‘It was all gone just still don’t know how we all got out one of our friends vans was half over the bank then they winched it out so so close [sic].’

The sinkhole is estimated to be about 100 metres by 100 metres and around three metres deep  Senior ranger Dan Clifton fears the sinkhole could get even bigger.

‘There is a real possibility the hole could expand with ocean currents, so people are urged to avoid the area,’ Mr Clifton told The Courier-Mail.

‘While we continue to assess the situation, our priority is public safety.’

The rapidly expanding hole was so monstrous that it took just minutes to swallow a car, caravan and trailer.

Sunshine Coast recovery experts Clayton’s Towing confirmed that two of their employees were holidaying at the camping ground when they were caught up ‘in the middle of the mayhem’.

‘They had camped approx 200 metres from the beach next to the boundary fence of the campsite and heard a noise like a storm,’ Clayton’s Towing posted on Facebook.

‘On looking they realised the sand was rapidly disappearing into the ocean at a [sic] amazing speed.

More than 100 campers were forced to evacuate the site after a massive sinkhole swallowed several vehicles. The rapidly expanding hole was so monstrous that it took just minutes to swallow a car, caravan and trailer.

‘They only just got their 4wds and caravans out with seconds to spare as their campsite disappeared three metres down into the ocean.’

There have been no injuries reported and everyone had been accounted for overnight, a Queensland police spokeswoman confirmed to Daily Mail Australia.

‘Police who attended the scene overnight are no longer there,’ she said.

The sinkhole opened up at about 11pm on Saturday, during which campers were forced to evacuate.

‘We’ve cleared the area and no one has been reported missing or injured. It is now in the hands of the Department of National Parks, Sport and Racing.’

Police and SES crews were called to the scene a short time later to warn more than 100 campers to move immediately to other areas deemed safe.
