A German tourist has suffered serious injuries in an attack by dingos in Queensland.

The ABC reports the 23-year-old man holidaying near Happy Valley on Fraser Island is understood to have wandered away from his tour group on Saturday morning, fallen asleep on a track and been mauled by two dingos.

He has wounds to his legs, arms and head and was flown to a hospital in a stable condition.

Rangers are patrolling the national park and have warned people to follow safety advice.

A 10-year-old boy was killed by dingos on Fraser Island 11 years ago.

Scientists are reviewing dingo management on Fraser Island for the State Government.

The previous state government had promised to cull some of the animals.
