A SINKHOLE has appeared in the Baldivis Stockland Shopping Centre carpark overnight.

Shopping centre staff said the carpark appeared to have sunken in, like a shallow pool.

About 40 per cent of the carpark has been closed to traffic as a precaution.

Staff said the cause of the sinkhole may have something to do with the drainage system underneath the carpark.

Stockland Shopping Centre centre management have been contacted for comment.
