The flight was a dual training navigation exercise. The flight planned route was from Marcoola to Archerfield and return to Marcoola. After the landing in Archerfield, the nose began to vibrate slightly during braking but showed no signs of significant issues. An inspection and pre-flight was then carried out after the aircraft was parked at the terminal. Departing Archerfield, there was no symptoms of nose wheel vibration, especially during ground roll on takeoff. On arrival at Marcoola, the aircraft landed safely. While rolling on the runway, both the instructor and student heard something fall out of the aircraft. Brakes were applied to put the aircraft into a halt and the aircraft nose wheel suddenly collapsed.
