It’s understood the woman, believed to be aged in her mid-20s, was found lying on the ground next to her car by child care workers, bloodied and beaten.
She was reportedly unconscious and her personal possessions were scattered across the bonnet of her car.
The young woman was treated at the scene by paramedics, including the High Acuity Response Unit, before being stretchered into a waiting ambulance.
A Queensland Ambulance spokesperson said the woman was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital where she remains this evening in a serious but stable condition.
