A WOMAN in her 20s has been airlifted to hospital after she was knocked into rocks by a wave at Noosa's famous Fairy Pools yesterday afternoon.

Paramedics were called to the rock pools about 4.15pm and treated the woman at the scene for a serious chest injury before the rescue helicopter arrived, a Queensland Ambulance representative said.

The RACQ LifeFlight rescue helicopter arrived at Noosa National Park shortly after 5pm, as the difficult terrain made it too dangerous for the woman to be carried to safety.

LifeFlight's rescue team winched the woman to the helicopter and flew her to Sunshine Coast University Hospital in a stable condition.
