Police are treating the deaths of a man and woman at a Central Queensland caravan park as suspicious.

Officers have established a Forward Command Post at the Calliope Caravan Park as they investigate the deaths.

Police were called to a Stowe Road complex about 5pm on Thursday when a 63-year-old man was found outside his caravan with significant head injuries.

The man was taken to Gladstone Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Police investigations led them to a nearby caravan where they found the body of a 60-year-old woman inside her van with significant injuries.

Crime scenes have been declared at both caravan sites with Scientific and Scenes of Crime officers processing the areas and uniform and detectives canvassing the caravan park.

A police Investigation Centre has been established at the Gladstone Police Station with detectives from the Homicide Investigation Unit arriving today to help local detectives.

Detective Inspector Darrin Shadlow, Crime Services, said the man and woman were known to each other and the deaths were being treated as suspicious.

“Police and emergency services were called after a resident of the caravan park located the deceased man with a significant head trauma,” he said.

“Our investigations to date indicate that the incidents may have occurred sometime between 3.30 and 4.40pm yesterday and we are appealing for anyone who may have noticed or heard something or seen anyone suspicious, or something out of the ordinary, to contact us.”

Anyone with information that can assist police in the investigation should call Policelink on 131 444 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the website crimestoppersqld.com.au.
