A woman has been flown to hospital after crashing with a group of kangaroos while on a motorbike.

The woman, aged in her 50s, crashed into the mob when the bounding marsupials crossed the road in front of a group of riders on Saturday afternoon.

A rescue chopper arrived on the scene in Queensland's Southern Downs region on the NSW border about 12:30pm.

The group provided the injured woman with first aid before emergency services arrived.

She was treated for several injuries, including to her chest, shoulder and broken wrist, being being flown to Toowoomba Hospital in a stable condition.

"The woman ... had been riding in a group when a bunch of kangaroos crossed the road in front of her, causing her to crash into one," LifeFlight said in a statement on Saturday.
