A man has died and two others are fighting for their lives after suspected drug overdoses at a house party on the Queensland and NSW border.

Emergency services were called to the address in Mount Lindsey about 10.20am on New Year's Day after several people became ill.

One man was declared dead at the scene and two others were airlifted to hospital in critical condition.

They all had an "adverse reaction from an as-yet unidentified substance", police said.

The two survivors were flown to Gold Coast University Hospital and Toowoomba Base Hospital.

There were believed to be up to 500 people at the party in Hardgrave Road, according to police.

Detectives are investigating the incident and will prepare a report for the coroner.
