Queensland Ambulance said the pair was transported in a stable condition by ambulance to Esk Hospital.
It’s the second goanna attack in southeast Queensland in as many months.
An eight-year-old girl was attacked while walking through a camp ground on South Stradbroke Island in January.
She was transported to the Gold Coast University Hospital with a deep wound to her foot.
