While the opening up of a sinkhole near the shore at Inskip Point on Saturday night, was undoubtedly a traumatic event for the holiday makers who lost their possessions, I join everyone else in being grateful that no one was injured.
The sinkhole is a reminder of the unpredictable forces of nature, but also that we have a great emergency response system in place with the SES, Queensland Police and QFES working with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services to safely evacuate and help all those affected.
While the sinkhole is large in itself, it is only a small component of the local area and I encourage everyone to still enjoy their holidays and continue patronising the traders and accommodation providers that make Rainbow Beach and surrounds one of the most beautiful parts of not only the Gympie region, but the country.
Just as nature can be destructive, it also delivers some amazing bounties to our region, evident at the Tin Can Bay Seafood Festival on Saturday, which celebrated the great array of seafood available fresh from local primary producers.
Tomorrow evening sees the final forum of our ‘Meet the Mayor and Councillors’ round at 6pm at Wolvi Hall.
