A 19-year-old woman has suffered serious back injuries after falling five metres from a rope swing onto rocks at Kinkuna Creek.

The Bundaberg based RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was first on the scene south of Elliot heads at 2pm yesterday afternoon.

The Queensland Ambulance Service flight paramedic had to traverse a steep cliff over five metres high to reach the patient who had been with friends using the swing rope to dive into the water when the accident occurred.

The young woman was stretchered before being airlifted to the Bundaberg Base Hospital in a stable condition.
