The warning comes after a motorcyclist was seriously hurt in the North Burnett over the weekend.

The man, in his 50s, was riding with a friend on a dirt track on Saturday when he hit a kangaroo.

The local RACQ LifeFlight Rescue helicopter was called to the scene and treated the man for suspected internal injuries before flying him to Bundaberg Hospital.
