The last shark attack in the area was eight years ago.

She was swimming at Cid Harbour in the Whitsunday Islands, off Australia's Queensland coast, on Thursday when she was bitten on the leg.

The RACQ CQ Rescue helicopter landed on a beach close to the harbour, and a doctor and paramedic were transferred to the boat to stabilise her.

A 46 year old woman from Tasmania is in a critical condition after being mauled on Wednesday. The shark bite left her bleeding profusely, the report said.

She was transported to Mackay Hospital by helicopter about 3.20pm and arrived about 4pm. The girl's father accompanied her on the rescue helicopter. Of these, two people died.

Justine Barwick was attacked in the Whitsundays by a shark on Wednesday.

Fisheries officers and water police were also patrolling the area, while swimmers were told to stay out of the water at the popular holiday hotspot.

Although he didn't see the wound, Mr McCauley was told Ms Barwick had "quite a big chunk of leg taken" and had suffered arterial bleeding.

"The patient was swimming when she was bitten, she was pulled back on to the (yacht) with significant injuries", the spokeswoman said. A local doctor adiministered first aid on board the boat, and she was quickly airlifted by rescue helicopter to hospital about 8pm.

The chopper flew to Proserpine Airport to refuel and was met by paramedics with bags of blood and additional pain relief for the woman, who was at that stage in a stable but very serious condition.

Mrs Barwick is the operations manager with the Tasmanian community care organisation Family Based Care.
