UPDATE: Man taken to hospital with significant leg injury

UPDATE, 6.10PM: A man in his 60s was transported to Rockhampton Hospital in a stable condition with a significant leg injury.

A Queensland Ambulance Service spokeswoman said it appeared the man was "clearing trees" and struck by something he was using to do the work.

The spokeswoman said the area was difficult for emergency services to access.

INITIAL: Queensland Fire and Emergency Services have been called to help rescue a man who is believed to be stuck down a "steep gully" after suffering a severe leg injury.

The emergency service was called to the rescue operation in bushland off Oaky Creek Road near Dululu about 2.35pm.

One fire crew is en route, with three assigned to the operation.

Initial reports suggested the person had a broken leg and was hit with a "scrub clearing chain".

Queensland Ambulance Service and Queensland Police Service are also responding.

More to come.
