Emergency crews were called to the Best of All Lookout on Repeater Station Road, deep in the Springbrook National Park, at around 10am following reports a young woman’s dog had become stuck on a ledge after slipping 30 metres down the cliff-side.
Queensland Fire and Emergency, ambulance paramedics, the RSPCA, State Emergency Service personnel and members of the public were involved in the delicate operation.

A SES volunteer scaled down the cliff and secured the one-year-old dog to a harness before she was gently winched to safety.
‘Lady the Labrador‘ was finally retrieved at around 1:40pm.
Jasmine, an ambulance officer with the RSPCA said Lady was very happy to be back with her owner.
“She was in great condition, not a scratch on her,” RSPCA Ambulance officer Jasmin said.
