Woman injured after falling 10m down cliff in national park

UPDATE: A rescue mission is under way after a woman fell 10m down a cliff at Main Range National Park on Saturday afternoon.

A Queensland Fire and Emergency Services spokeswoman said a woman had fallen approximately 10m down a cliff near Sylvesters Lookout, which is in the Goomburra section of Main Range National Park.

One QFES crew was on scene after hiking to the location, and the woman had “some injuries”, the details of which were unknown at this point, the QFES spokeswoman said.

A technical rescue vehicle is on the way to the scene, as are two level two technical rescue specialists, a senior officer from Toowoomba, and an auxiliary crew from Allora.

QFES are also sending out a rural command vehicle to help with communications, which are quite patchy in the national park.
