The cabin of the logging truck has ended up almost on its roof in a ditch beside the road.

A QAS spokesman said paramedics were dispatched to the scene about 8.22am but fortunately nobody had been injured and nobody required tranpsortation to Gympie Hospital.

Queensland Police Media said the single vehicle truck rollover occurred around 8.20am on Tin Can Bay Rd at the Maryborough roundabout exit.

The driver was able to immediately get out of the truck uninjured.

QFES have since been cleaning up a diesel spill from the incident.
