Helluva SinkHole!... 6807732-3x2-700x467

A major sinkhole has swallowed vehicles at a popular camping spot near Queensland's Rainbow Beach overnight.

The sinkhole, bigger than a football field and several metres deep, developed at Inskip Point around midnight.

A car, caravan, a camper trailer and tents were swallowed almost immediately.

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services (QPWS) said 150-metre sinkhole is three metres deep and takes up a large part of the MV Beagle campsite.

Holiday-maker Casey Hughes told ABC the sinkhole "sounded like a thunder noise" as it opened up.

Fellow camper Sylvia Murray said "it was amazing to see".

"People were basically on the edge of it with their van, trying to madly get their vans out," she said.

Wow, that's something else! I was glad to read that no one was injured and all are accounted for...

It is really phenomenal how so many sink holes appearing across the planet.
