She fell approximately five metres to the ground, according to an RACQ LifeFlight Rescue source.
The rescue chopper was called to a private property somewhere in the region just before 6pm.
Paramedics were on the scene when the aeromedical team arrived.
The woman was taken to the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition, suffering from suspected spinal injuries.
