Two people have died in suspicious circumstances after they were found with significant injuries at a Queensland caravan park.

Police were called to the Calliope Caravan Park, south of Gladstone, at about 5pm after a 63-year-old man was found outside his caravan with head injuries.

He was transported to Gladstone Hospital, but was later pronounced dead.

The body of a 60-year-old woman was found inside another caravan at the Stowe Road complex with significant injuries.

Police have since set up a command post and crime scene at the caravan park, and also a homicide investigation centre at Gladstone Police Station, as they attempt to determine the circumstances that led to the pair’s deaths.

Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow said police believe the man and woman were known to each other and their deaths are being treated as suspicious.
