The two women (aged 29 and 26) and two men (aged 31 and 28) were stranded whilst camping on the long weekend.

Rescue helicopters from Townsville were unable to reach the group due to weather conditions and a mustering helicopter from Charters Towers was called in by co-ordinators and conveyed the four to safety.
