A WOMAN in her 60s has been airlifted by RACQ CareFlight Rescue after sustaining serious injuries in a quad bike rollover on a property at Mount Tom.

She suffered suspected head and multi-trauma injuries.

The Bundaberg RACQ CareFlight Rescue helicopter was called to the accident north of Bundaberg shortly before 10.30am, landing on scene within 40 minutes.

Emergency services on the ground worked with the QAS flight intensive care paramedic on board CareFlight's helicopter to assess and treat the woman's injuries.

She was flown to Bundaberg Hospital in a stable condition.

RACQ CareFlight Rescue's community helicopters have performed 18 airlifts since the start of the Christmas school holidays.
