Weird.

Do those people watching realise the danger they're in? A void could appear instantly and take them all down.

Helpin' you out:



This is very, very interesting, to see a sinkhole at the water's edge.

What is the explanation for these? This is scary, never seen one, nor heard of one before.

Thanks for this, learned something new.

Someone should scuba dive down to see whats at the bottom. I don't think any of these recent sinkholes have been explored due to the danger of repelling down, but this one is filled with water and could be more easily and safely explored.

Not that out of the ordinary for that location.networkedblogs.com...


Gympie police duty officer Sergeant Vic Tipman said sink holes – which swallowed portions of beach as big as houses – were common at Inskip.

``Normally it will be between Inskip Point and where the barge goes across,’’ he said.

``The sand just erodes from underneath the current and all of a sudden half the beach disappears.

From the article...

networkedblogs.com...

Gympie police duty officer Sergeant Vic Tipman said sink holes – which swallowed portions of beach as big as houses – were common at Inskip.

``Normally it will be between Inskip Point and where the barge goes across,’’ he said.

``The sand just erodes from underneath the current and all of a sudden half the beach disappears.

``You’ve got to be careful driving up there.’’


Happens every few years there apparently. This isn't new nor is it a surprise.

How is that a load of crap ?

You've obviously never met an Australian, so long as we have a beer in our hand we'd stand around & watch anything. Its not as if the beach was being sucked into a massive hole suddenly, you could easily watch the progress of the erosion.

That video isnt of a sinkhole, its of rapid erosion, nothing more. Its not something to freak out about unless your house is close, but it is evidence of considerable erosion happening a lot quicker than normal. Theres many reason this could be happening, from a change in ocean currents to the loss of vegetation in the sand dunes.

Nothing new, just sped up considerably. That piece of beach will probably settle down for some time now, & I still cant see how its a load of crap.
