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.
Another landslip tore a bite from the coastline a few month later in March, 2016.
Glen Cruickshank from Rainbow Beach Helicopters said this was larger than the one that made international headlines three years ago.
“I’d have to say this is slightly bigger,” he said.
“This new hole — it’s through the beach, it’s through the trees, it’s a round hole, quite deep and quite big.”
He said it was a few hundred metres from where the previous two appeared.
“With all the three sinkholes that have been there, they have all been in an area that’s only 400 metres between them.
