A man has been taken to hospital after a shark attack off the central Queensland coast.
Paramedics were called out to a beach at Seventeen Seventy near Gladstone after 4.30pm AEST on Friday.
They discovered a man in his 20s with a "significant leg injury" from a shark bite, Queensland Ambulance Service said.
He was treated on the beach before being transported to Bundaberg hospital in a serious condition.
