Paramedics, firefighters, police and the SES were tasked with the Windin Falls in Wooroonooran National Park on the Tablelands.

A QFES spokeswoman said the Rescue 510 helicopter had been hired to assist with the search and rescue effort.

Windin Falls is a popular spot for hikers with a natural infinity pool at the top that slopes down into a valley below.

It’s approximately a 90-minute hike to reach Malanda Waterfall via the Old Cairns Track.

Visitors are warned to exercise extreme caution on the track due to the heavy falls at the edges.

Ambulance communication back and forth from the remote area is limited due to the remoteness and mountainous terrain.
