Double blow at Inskip Pt

LAST week's heavy seas have cut a swathe through sand dunes at Inskip Pt and possibly contributed to the expansion of a large sink hole that formed on the point last year.

The appearance of a giant sinkhole stunned beachgoers at the popular camping ground last June when the beach gave way and was swallowed by the ocean.

The massive sand shift left a hole in the beach stretching one hundred metres.

On Saturday morning it looked like a repeat of last year's event was about to happen when sand started falling into the ocean.

This time just a 30 metre edge of the sinkhole gave way moving the beach another 15 metres south.

Holiday makers said National Parks and Wildlife rangers erected warning signs on the beach.
