The sinkhole, bigger than a football field and several metres deep, developed at Inskip Point around midnight.
Police said the hole opened up slowly from about 11pm and was estimated to be about 100 metres by 100 metres and around three metres deep.
A car, caravan and truck were sunk almost immediately.
Around 140 people were evacuated on Saturday night at a popular Queensland camping ground after a giant sink hole opened, swallowing a car, a caravan and a camping trailer. The 100-metre long sinkhole opened up at MV Beagle Campground, north of Queensland's Rainbow Beach at Inskip Point. Around 140 people were evacuated to safer parts of the national park. Police say the hole opened up slowly at Inskip Point from about 10.30pm and initial reports estimated the sinkhole to be about 100 metres by 100 metres and around three metres deep. Camper Melanie Wotherspoon described her horror in a Facebook post. "Yep, can't believe we made it out," Ms Wotherspoon wrote. "I thought we were gonners for sure, was truly scary how fast it came into our camp site and swallowed it up."
