British tourist plunges 30m to death from popular Australian attraction

A British tourist has plunged 30 metres to her death from a popular Australian attraction, an inquest has heard.

Zoe Woolmer was on a guided tour at Kings Canyon in Australia’s Northern Territory in June 2014, when she was encouraged to pose for a photo with 16 other tourists, which would give the impression they were clinging to or falling from the cliff.

It is then the 23-year-old allegedly lost her grip and fell.


She suffered severe injuries, including skull fractures, bleeding to the brain a broken back, fractured pelvis and a fractured right shoulder blade.

Ms Woolmer was still alive when rangers arrived about 50 minutes later and she was able to talk to paramedics.

But despite performing CPR for more than 20 minutes, she passed away at the scene.

The inquest is continuing.
