Update: Inskip nearshore landslip

Issued: 25 Sep 2018

Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service (QPWS) rangers have inspected the nearshore landslip site again this morning (25 September 2018) and will continue to monitor the area.

Rangers observed a slight expansion of the area impacted, most likely due to the high tide and wave action overnight.

QPWS has not received any reports of injuries or property affected by the event.

In relation to reports of a second landslip occurring in the same area, rangers did not observe any changes to Inskip beach that would suggest this is happening.

The erosion has not affected any campsites and is not affecting access to the barge to Fraser Island. The closest campgrounds remain 150–200 metres away from the landslip.

In the interest of public safety, Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service will continue to closely monitor the site for the rest of the week.

Local rangers ask that visitors to Inskip Peninsula Recreation Area take note of current park alerts and stay clear of this section of beach.
