Man dies after falling down cliff during bushwalk in Queensland

A 32-year-old man has tragically died after falling down a cliff while bushwalking in Queensland’s Scenic Rim region.

Police were called around 10:45am on Saturday morning to reports that the man, who was walking with a small group, had slipped and fallen at a location at Mount Barney.

Paramedics from Queensland Ambulance Service also attended the scene, as well as members of the Queensland Fire and Emergency Service.

A spokesperson for Queensland Police told Travel Weekly that the man was declared deceased, but his body was only recovered at 11am this morning due to weather conditions over the weekend.

The incident occurred less than 24 hours after Queensland reopened its borders to travellers from New South Wales, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, the Australian Capital Territory and the Northern Territory.
