A woman has been rescued in dramatic fashion by Queensland's surf lifesaving helicopter after being swept out to sea by a rip on the Gold Coast.

The Westpac Rescue Helicopter was called around midday Thursday to rescue the woman in her 50s who had been swept out to sea off Burleigh.

The chopper crew successfully winched the woman to safety, and she was taken to shore without incident.
